Salmon with Pesto Topping

If your house is like mine, we could eat salmon once a week. The challenge is new, creative, and tasty meals for salmon. The recipe only requires four ingredients so it easy to prepare. All of the ingredients can be found at your local Publix grocery store or your favorite grocery store with a good seafood section for the salmon.


  1. 2 Salmons Fillets ( good size)
  2. 2 Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  3. 1 teaspoon of minced garlic (McCormick's California Style minced garlic)
  4. Pesto from jar of Classico Traditional Basil Pesto sauce & spread


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 1 teaspoon of minced garlic in small bowl.
  3. Pour mixture over salmon fillets in an oven proof dish.
  4. Spread enough Pesto to cover over both fillets.
  5. Place pesto covered salmon in oven, and cook for 22 -25 minutes depending on thickness of fillets.
  6. When salmon fillets flake with fork, serve.
