My two favorite things in a recipe. Salmon and pistachios. For Christmas last year, I had one box under the Christmas tree from my parents. It was a gift card and a bag of Costco pistachios. Best.Christmas.Ever. My parents know me a little too well. And it was my dad who got our family addicted to pistachios. And sunflower seeds. But that is a whole different obsession. Hmmm sunflower seed salmon. 🙂
How could you not love pistachios? They are amazing! This salmon combined so many amazing flavors. The dill, lemon, brown sugar, and pistachios combined perfectly to give it an amazing salty sweet taste. I love grilling salmon because it takes less than 10 minutes and peels apart with your fork.
Grilled Pistachio Salmon
Amazing melt in your mouth salmon grilled to perfection with the perfect pistachio glaze on top!
- 6 salmon fillets (6 oz each)
- 1 cup pistachios chopped
- 3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
- 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
- 1 tsp dill weed optional
- 1 tsp pepper
Combine the pistachios, sugar, lemon juice, dill and pepper. Spoon evenly over salmon fillets.
Grill covered over high heat 5 to 10 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
To grill the salmon, I used a grilling basket and lined it with aluminum foil and sprayed it with cooking spray. The salmon was able to grill in the juices and I didn't lose any pistachios. It turned out amazing!
