The Recipe Post #14: Roasted Pesto Salmon
Today's recipe post has become a firm family favourite.
It's so simple but full of flavour.
The pesto seems to enhance the flavour of the salmon fillet even more, the roasted tomatoes are delicious, and we team it with brown rice and veggies, or simply a roasted vegetable selection as shown here.
You will need:
- Salmon fillets (1 per person, and we usually make extras for lunches)
- Cherry tomatoes, halved
- Accompaniments of your choice - pictured here are roasted sweet potatoes, butternut squash, courgettes and red, green and yellow peppers, and some garlic spinach. In the past we've served it with brown rice, broccoli and peas.
Preheat the oven to about 200 degrees Celsius.
Line up the salmon fillets on a baking tray and spread a layer of pesto across the top of each.
Top each fillet with some halved cherry tomatoes for a burst of flavour.
Pop into the over for about 15 minutes.
Serve with sides of your choice!
We've been eating this every week or two at the moment, and every night I say I'm making it the news is definitely welcomed!
Simple, tasty and full of goodness.
