Baked Pesto Salmon

The Fundamentals

Wild-Caught Salmon Filets
Homemade Pesto (like this)

1. In a glass baking dish, place salmon filets skin side down. Spread with desired amount of pesto.

2. In a 350 degree oven, bake for 20 minutes uncovered until heated through but still tender.

That’s it, you’re done! And this is so packed with flavor even with its simplicity, it is a fantastic addition to your dinner rotation – especially if you are in a pinch!

    So…I’m totally not a seafood person. We grew up on salmon in Washington as a child, and I got dreadfully sick of it.. Slowly, I’m trying to incorporate more seafood into my diet since Holistic Squid and others recommend it so vehemently, and this recipe makes my stomach grumble every time I see it! Just might have to give this one a whirl… Thanks, Katie! :)
