This Herbed Goat Cheese and Pistachio Crusted Salmon is as easy as it is delicious! Buttery salmon is topped with tangy herbed goat cheese and crunchy roasted pistachios for a simple, healthy dish that’s ready in just 15-minutes. A quick and easy dinner that’s fancy enough for date night, yet easy enough for a hectic weeknight!

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh. YOU GUYS.

My fingers are literally dancing off the keyboard right now as I type up this post. (Partly because I had an extra cup of coffee this morning, but mostly because I’m just SO DARN EXCITED about this recipe) I basically took three of my favorite foods (salmon, pistachios, and goat cheese) and combined them into one dish. And let’s just say, the results were even MORE epic than I could have imagined.

I’m a firm believer that you don’t need a lot of time (or ingredients) to make a healthy and delicious meal. That being said, all you need to make this Herbed Goat Cheese and Pistachio Crusted Salmon is just 15 minutes and 3 main ingredients (plus a few pinches of herbs for flavor!) And despite the fact that this dish tastes incredibly indulgent, it’s actually extremely nutritious!
