Salmon - Recipe

Living for a few years in California I was blessed with having fish and fresh fish at that.  I'm not sure if I really liked it back then but I do remember lots of Trout and Salmon.  Mom would know the answer though!  A couple of years ago my MIL made us dinner and she served Pistachio Pesto Salmon.  Talk about fabulous!!!  It was our dinner tonight and thought I would share.  Enjoy!!!

Pistachio Pesto Salmon
-Salmon fillet (wild caught and fresh best but I always make sure it is at least wild caught)
-Pistachio nuts (couple hand fulls)
-Pesto (I prefer the basil garlic pine nut pesto)

-Grind pistachios into fine mixture.
-Lay Salmon into baking dish and cover with pesto (as much as you like)
-Then cover pesto with the pistachios
-Bake at 350 until Salmon is done (flaky)

I like to serve it with angel hair pasta but tonight was Mac-N-Cheese and Peas.

Pistachios now finely chopped

Salmon covered with Pesto

Yummy goodness
  Just wish camera took a better picture


  1. I'm going to use this recipe. Thanks. Looks yummy.
    Oh and I haven't forgotten about the thai recipes. I have them, I just need to write them out.

  2. Is this the same salmon we had once?????? It was SO good!!! And now I know what to do with the salmon from your freezer clean out! :)

  3. That does look tasty. Been a while since we've done salmon. Maybe I'm inspired...

  4. Thanks everyone!! It is one of my favorite ways to eat Salmon.
