This pistachio crusted salmon salad is tender, flavorful and has just enough crunch for the perfect bite. This pistachio crusted salmon is made with a flavorful lemon dijon base and crusted on top are golden panko breadcrumbs and pistachios



1 lb salmon filet, or 34 pieces

2 lemons (juiced)

3 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tsp honey

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 cup finely chopped pistachios

1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs

2 tbsp olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

1 Taylor Farms Strawberry Rosè Chopped Salad Kit

1/2 cup thinly sliced strawberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. 
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the salmon, skin side down. Season lightly with salt and cracked black pepper. 
  3. In a small bowl mix together lemon juice, dijon mustard, honey, and garlic. Spread evenly over salmon filet. 
  4. In a separate small bowl mix together pistachios, panko bread crumbs and olive oil. Press the ‘crusted’ mixture into the salmon filet evenly. 
  5. Bake salmon filet for 12-15 minutes or until fish flakes off easily with a fork. Allow salmon to cool for 5 minutes and place onto prepared Taylor Farms Strawberry Rosè Salad Kit and top with strawberries.
