HOW TO MAKE Baked Pesto Salmon

  • Step 1. To prepare the pesto, add the walnuts, lemon juice, garlic and half of the basil to a food processor. Pulse the mixture a few times until a chunky mixture forms.

  • Step 2. Remove the top of the food processor and add the remaining basil. Cover the food processor and pulse again.

  • Step 3. While pulsing, pour in the olive oil. Once a pesto has formed, remove the lid and add salt to taste.

  • Step 4. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Step 5. In a small bowl, combine the grated garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Rub this mixture all over the salmon.

  • Step 6. Place the salmon on a parchment covered sheet pan and top with a few slices of lemon.

  • Step 7. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the internal temperature reads at least 145 degrees Fahrenheit with your Thermopro thermometer. The cooking time will vary based on the thickness of your salmon as well as how well done you prefer your salmon to be.

  • Step 8. Top with the pesto and fresh basil and enjoy.
