Pistachio Crusted Salmon

Salmon is one of the ultimate super foods. Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, these fish do wonders for your body – including aiding weight loss.

Enjoy this deliciously healthy salmon recipe that incorporates a sweet and nutty flavor!


  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 4 tablespoons mustard (stone ground is preferred)
  • Between 1 and 2 cups shelled pistachios
  • Between 1/4 cup to 1 cup quick oats
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce (this is the healthy substitution for oil. It also makes the fish taste sweeter and juicier)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

To Make:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  • Skin side down, place the salmon on a baking sheet
  • In a small bowl, mix the lemon juice and mustard together and drizzle sparingly over the top of the salmon so that it is covered
  • Grind the pistachios in a food processor, or chop them on your own until they are small pieces
  • Add the oatmeal, applesauce, salt and pepper to the pistachio mix, and combine well
  • Sprinkle the pistachio mixture over the mustard to cover the salmon evenly
  • Cook for 30 minutes
