Grapefruit pistachio crusted salmon is a healthy and easy salmon recipe, packed with healthy fats and delicious citrus flavor. Ready in under 30 minutes!


  • 4 salmon filets
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon honey or agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed grapefruit juice (1/2 grapefruit)
  • 1/2 cup pistachios
  • 1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place your salmon filets on a lightly greased baking sheet. Season top side with salt and pepper.
  3. In a food processor or blender, add olive oil, honey or agave nectar, grapefruit juice, pistachios, paprika and a light pinch of salt and pepper. Pulse ingredients a few times until combined. Spoon nut mixture over salmon filets and spread evenly. Bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes until salmon flakes easily. (I baked for 12 minutes, then turned broiler on for last minute or two for a little extra color on top – keep an eye on it though!)
