I can't decide what I love the most about this dish: the ease of it or the flavors. Not gonna lie. I really love this dish. You take a slab of salmon and slather it with pre-made pesto and add tomatoes . . .easy peasy. And, even clean up is a cinch because you bake it in a foil packet! I served mine with some sliced avocado on the side . . .healthy was the theme!
Salmon with Pesto & Tomatoes
1/2 Pound of Salmon (without bones)
2 Tablespoons Pesto
8-10 Grape Tomatoes (washed and halved)
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Layout a piece of tinfoil twice the length of the salmon. Place the salmon (skin-side down if it still has the skin) on the left-side of the foil.
Step 2: Spread the pesto on top of the salmon and top with the grape tomatoes.
Step 3: Fold the tinfoil over the salmon/tomatoes and close up the edges (there should only be three edges of the foil to fold/close). Place packet on top of baking sheet.
Step 4: Place the pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and carefully open the foil packet. The fish should flake easily with a fork. To serve, using a flat spatula, remove the fish from the foil and place on plates. If there was skin on the fish, the skin should stick to the foil.
