Wonderful, simple salmon recipe. I loved the addition of lemon with the pesto sauce. My fillets took 15 minutes. It was beautiful served alongside some roasted asparagus.

This was easy and delicious - I used salmon fillets and oven baked it for 25 minutes. I'd never thought of using pesto and salmon together before - thanks for the inspiration, Fairy! :-) Made for Recipe Swap July 2008 in the Australian/NZ forum.
