This oven-baked salmon recipe really appeals to kids, because the pistachio coating provides crunch, much like a fried fish. Once you learn how to cook salmon this way, you can vary the recipe in many ways.
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 450 F. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.
In a pie plate or shallow dish, mix panko bread crumbs, pistachios, and thyme.
Pour buttermilk into another shallow dish, and set it next to the panko mixture.
Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Dip the non-skin side of the salmon fillets in the buttermilk, then dip the salmon in the panko mixture. Lay the salmon in the baking dish, skin side down.
Bake the salmon in the oven, 14 to 18 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
Serve and enjoy!
- Try this recipe with pecans or macadamia nuts instead of pistachios.
- Try different herbs (just about any will do—whatever is left in your garden or vegetable crisper).
- Substitute crushed saltines for the Panko bread crumbs.
