From the Test Kitchen

To complement our rich salmon fillets, we’re coating them in creamy mustard sauce and savory pistachio breadcrumbs before baking in the oven until deliciously golden brown. For a twist on a simple side of brown rice, we’re calling on the traditional flavors of piccata—an Italian preparation that highlights briny capers and fresh lemon.
