Grilled Pistachio Salmon

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.  🙂
grilledpistachiosalmonHow 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.

Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 6 salmon fillets, (6 oz each)
  • 1 cup pistachios, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp dill weed, optional
  • 1 tsp pepper
Instructions
  1. Combine the pistachios, sugar, lemon juice, dill and pepper. Spoon evenly over salmon fillets.
  2. Grill covered over high heat 5 to 10 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
Notes
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!

  1. I’m interested in making the recipe you posted. However, in the directions to list to “combine everything with the lemon juice” and you list no lemon juice in the ingredients list. How much should be used?
