I love this salmon recipe. It takes such little effort to make this completely gourmet dish. The crunchiness of the pistachios atop the cream sauce covered fish will make you go "Mmm!" every bite. You can always swap out the pistachios with any type of nut and it will still work brilliantly.

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 2 main courses


  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/8 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsp plain yogurt
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1 Tbsp oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400F (I used my toaster oven) and line a baking sheet with foil.

  3. Spread some oil on foil. Place salmon, add rest of oil to top. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper. You will shoot for baking your fish for 15-20 minutes, depending how you like it and how thick it is. While baking, combine garlic, onion and lemon zest in small bowl.
