Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pistachios plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 (4-ounce) fresh salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Lemon Cream Sauce recipe follows
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper

Directions

  1. In a shallow dish, combine the pistachios, salt, and pepper. Dredge the salmon in the pistachio mixture, pressing gently to coat.
  2. In a small skillet, heat the oil and garlic over medium heat. Add the salmon and cook until browned, about 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium; turn the salmon and cook until salmon flakes easily with fork, about 2 or 3 minutes more. Transfer the fillets to serving plates. Serve with Lemon Cream Sauce, and garnish with chopped pistachios, if desired.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat.  Stir in cream and simmer until thickened, whisking frequently, about 3 minutes. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, whisking to combine. Cook for 2 minutes, whisking constantly. Pour into a serving dish and serve with the salmon.
