Pistachio Crusted Salmon with Lime (Gluten Free)
Everyone loves salmon so this year I created an easy salmon recipe with a bit of crunch and zest. This recipe has only 4 ingredients (plus some salt and pepper to taste) so it’s simple and comes together very quickly.
How to make pistachio crusted salmon
This pistachio crusted salmon recipe does require a bit of time for marinating (at least 30 minutes) but there isn’t really a marinade to make. Just season the fish and drizzle with lime. So it’s simple and once you’ve done this easy step you can get on with preparing other dishes.
Making a crusted salmon recipe is very uncomplicated. Whilst the fish is marinating in the lime juice prepare the pistachio mixture. Then simply spread it over the fish and bake! Your delicious, zesty pistachio crusted salmon with a crunch will be ready in less than 20 minutes.

I often sprinkle fish with either lime or lemon juice (and leave to marinate for a while) before popping it in the oven. The results are always fantastic. The fish is gorgeously succulent and tastes delicious.
This crusted salmon recipe produces not only delicious, succulent fish but comes with a bit of added crunch. The roasted nutty topping complements the fish extremely well. And it looks so pretty too:)
As with any fish recipe, it is important not to overcook it as it might come out of the oven a little dry. Times of cooking may vary depending on the thickness of your fish.
