Salmon In Pesto
Category: Fish & Seafood
4 salmon filets, approx 4 oz ea
8 oz basil pesto
4 tbsp. olive oil
2 plum tomatoes, sliced thin
Romano cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 350° degrees.
Take 4 individual casserole dishes (Corning Ware makes a good one) Put approx 2 tablespoons of basil pesto into each dish. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to each dish and mix into pesto until smooth. Place one salmon filet into each dish. Put 2 - 3 slices of tomato on each filet. Top with a sprinkle of romano cheese.
Bake in 350° over for 15 - 20 minutes until pesto bubbles and salmon is opaque and cooked through.
Use sliced roasted red peppers to top filets instead of tomatos for a good variation. Also works with tuna or swordfish.
Serves 4. Excellent with rice pilaf and asparagus.
Baking Time: 15-20 minutes.
