Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F
  • Cut salmon into 3-4 pieces and place skin down in large cast iron skillet or baking dish
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half, rinse, and set aside.
  • Rinse the baby zucchini and set aside.
  • Add the tomatoes and zucchini around the salmon in the pan, then top with pistachios.
  • Drizzle the extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top of the salmon pieces.
  • Add the remaining seasoning and gently stir to combine.
  • Place the dish in the oven uncovered and bake for 13-15 minutes (or until salmon is done in the center).

Notes

  • I prefer to use a flavored balsamic vinegar and a flavor infused extra-virgin olive oil in this recipe. It really helps enhance the flavor in this dish!
  • This recipe calls for baby zucchini, which I can typically find at my local grocery store. But if you can't find them, just substitute regular zucchini cut into spears.
  • Did you know that your  grocer's meat department will cut your salmon filets for you? Take advantage of this service!!
  • If you can't find unsalted pistachios, then omit the 1/4 tsp salt the recipe calls for or just add a dash of salt. 
  • If you prefer your zucchini on the crisper side, just keep the pieces larger when your cutting them. Whereas if you prefer the zucchini softer, you can cut the pieces smaller.
