Preheat the oven to 375F.

Grind pistachios into medium sized pieces with a blender or food processor. Combine pistachios, bread crumbs, cheese, and butter in a small bowl; stir with a fork until thoroughly mixed. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper on both sides.

Heat olive oil in an oven safe skillet over medium heat. Sear salmon fillets, flesh-side down, for 2 minutes. Turn heat off and flip salmon pieces over so skin side is down. Brush salmon evenly with Dijon mustard. Top with pistachio mixture, pressing mixture down onto salmon.
