Pan Seared Salmon with Dill-Pistachio Pistou

Salmon with Dill-Pistachio Pistou

INGREDIENTS
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh dill or 3 Tablespoons Dried Dill
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped green onions (about 2)
  • 1/2 cup shelled natural pistachios or almonds, toasted, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup organic butter
  • 2 yellow bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch matchsticks
  • 1 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed, strings removed
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 6-ounce salmon fillets
PREPARATION
  • Mix dill, green onions, pistachios, and 1/4 cup melted butter in medium bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Heat 3 Tablespoons butter in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add peppers and sauté until beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Add snap peas, garlic, and 1/4 cup water; sprinkle with salt. Sauté until vegetables are just tender and water evaporates, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in 1 rounded tablespoon pistou. Transfer vegetables to platter; tent with foil to keep warm. Reserve skillet (do not clean).

  • Heat remaining 1 tablespoon butter in reserved skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. Place salmon, skin side down, in skillet; cook until skin is crisp, about 3 minutes. Turn salmon and cook until almost opaque in center, about 3 minutes longer. Arrange salmon fillets over vegetables on platter. Spoon some pistou down center of each fillet and serve, passing remaining pistou alongside.
