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.
I made this recipe for supper with salmon filet;it's great!I did not have cashews; used pine nuts.Thank you for sharing this tasty dish.
I think I've found a new favourite way to cook salmon - this was ever so good!
I had bought some Dover sole for another dish then I saw this recipe. Added just a hint of myzithra cheese instead of parmesan. I broke my rule of eating fresh basil instead of cooked only but for this recipe I made an exception. Happy I did. Too rainy to grill so had to bake! :(
I made this accoding to instructions--just left out the parmesan--really delicious. The fish was moist, beautifully flaky, the pesto really a great foil for the sweetness of fish. I squeezed the lemon over the fish when I served it. So good and so easy--and hardly any clean-up!
