A chunky pistou with full pistachio flavor adds depth to this fresh salmon dish. Want even more vegetables? Slice lemon cucumbers (a wonderful farmers' market variety that looks somewhat like a yellow tomato) and add a squeeze of lemon juice and a pinch of dill to make the perfect starter.

Recipe Ingredients for Salmon with Snap Peas, Yellow Peppers, and Dill-Pistachio Pistou

1/3 cup dill, fresh, chopped
1/3 cup green onions, finely chopped (about 2)
1/2 cup pistachios, shelled natural, finely chopped (or almonds, toasted)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil (or pistachio oil)
1 1/2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil (or pistachio olive oil)
2 yellow bell peppers, cut into 1/2" strips (or orange bell peppers)
1 lb. sugar snap peas, trimmed, strings removed
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup water
24 ounces salmon (4 6-oz fillets)

Recipe Directions for Salmon with Snap Peas, Yellow Peppers, and Dill-Pistachio Pistou

  1. Mix dill, green onions, pistachios, and 1/4 cup oil in medium bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper (Do ahead: Pistou can be made 2 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature).

  2. Heat 1/2 Tbsp oil in heavy parge skillet over medium-high heat. Add peppers and saute until beginning to soften, about 2 minutes.

  3. Add snap peas, garlic, and 1/4 cup water; sprinkle with salt. Saute until vegetables are just tender and water evaporates, 2-3 minutes.

  4. Stir in 1 rounded tablespoon pistou.

  5. Transfer vegetables to platter; tent with foil to keep warm.

  6. Reserve skillet (do not clean).

  7. Heat remaining 1 Tbsp oil in reserved skillet over medium-high heat.

  8. Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. Place salmon, skin-side down, in skillet; cook until skin is crisp, about 3 minutes.

  9. Turn salmon and cook until almost opaque in center, about 3 minutes longer.

  10. Arrange fillets over vegetables on platter. Spoon some pistou down center of each fillet and serve, passing remaining pistou alongside.
