Pistachio encrusted salmon may sound like something you’d order on a weekend vacation in the Bahamas. But we want you to enjoy this delicious gourmet treat in the comfort of your own home. This True* recipe is so easy to prepare and packed with omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B-12, vitamin B3 and more. It’s the perfect option for lunch or dinner; pair this with our Basil Vinaigrette to add even more flavor!
