How to Make Baked Salmon With Pistachio and Herbs

  1. Preheat the oven to 400˚F/200˚C.
  2. Add the arugula, parsley, mint, pistachios, lime zest, 1/4 cup of olive oil, salt, and pepper to a blender. Pulse until you make a green paste.
  3. Lay one salmon fillet on your chopping board, skin-side down. Season it with salt and pepper, then spread the green paste all over it. Place the second salmon fillet over it, skin-side up, then tie both parts with cooking twine.
  4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Place the salmon on it, then drizzle it with olive oil. Bake for 25 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, heat about 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a skillet and add sea salt. Add the lime halves in it, cut-side down. Cook for about 1 minute, stir and cook for 30 more seconds.
