Maple Dijon Salmon with Pistachios

My sister in law gave me this recipe and it's become a favourite! It's easy prep and no hands on cooking! I've made it both on the BBQ and in the oven

Salmon fillets

3 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
3 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
1 cup shelled and coarsely chopped pistachio nuts

Place salmon, skin side down on parchment paper or foil covered baking sheet (spray foil with oil) or a foil pan if doing on the BBQ.
Mix Maple syrup and Dijon Mustard together and spread over salmon fillet.
Sprinkle with pistachios and bake in oven at 350 degrees or on BBQ until fish is done.
It should flake easily with a fork but not be too dry. (Depending on the thickness of the fish, this will take about 20 minutes.)
Lift the salmon off of the skin and place on serving plate.


  1. I love maple syrup on salmon, I usually do maple and soy sauce. . so I'm sure I'll love this one too.

  2. Yum...thanks for the salmon recipe (slamon?) Grin... Another way to prepare it is always wonderful to present as one can't get enough of fresh salmon for supper

  3. i had fish today for supper and it is always good to post new fish soon as my kids load the pictures i'll post mine, thanks for sharing this one.

  4. That looks absolutely delicious and I really wanted salmon for dinner tonight too. Maybe I will pick some up for tomorrow and try your recipe.

  5. Just had this for dinner tonight. Fantastic! All three of my picky eaters loved it too!
