Place a rack in the middle of your oven and preheat it to 375F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Pat the salmon dry. And rub flesh with olive oil.
In a small bowl, combine minced garlic cloves and honey, spread over salmon.
Season with salt and pepper.
Press chopped pistachios onto salmon flesh.
Bake in oven until flesh flakes easily about 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and let rest for 5 min. before serving.
If you are using a previously frozen salmon fillet make sure to thaw it overnight in the refrigerator. Check to make sure the salmon is well thawed before proceeding with the recipe.
Maple syrup can be used in place of honey.
If pistachios are not available, chopped cashews, pecans, almonds and peanuts can be used to crust the salmon.
Keep in mind that the fish continues to cook when it's removed from the oven, so make sure to take it out sooner rather than later.
