  • In a small bowl, whisk the mustard, honey, lemon juice, salt, and pepper together.
  • Blend the pistachios in a small blender, or finely chop them by hand; pour them onto a small plate.
  • Brush the mustard mixture onto the salmon, then dip the salmon fillets into the crushed pistachios.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, then add the salmon skin side up and cook for 1 minute. Use a spatula to carefully slip the salmon over, cover the skillet and continue cooking the salmon for 3-5 more minutes until the salmon can easily be flaked with a fork. Enjoy!
