Place salmon on parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet; sprinkle with a pinch each salt and pepper. Brush tops with mustard; sprinkle with pistachios, pressing firmly to adhere. Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until fish flakes easily when tested with fork, 12 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook rapini until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes; drain. Transfer to bowl of ice water until chilled; drain well.

In large skillet, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat; sauté garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add rapini; sauté until heated through, about 3 minutes. Serve with salmon.
