Roast Salmon with Perfect Pesto

from my busy home to yours…


2 T. Perfect Pesto or store bought pesto if you don’t have any on hand
16 oz. Salmon (figure 6-8oz. per person)


1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil, this is immensely helpful with easy clean-up.
2. Rinse salmon briefly under cold water and pat dry with a paper towel.
3. Spread pesto evenly over the salmon and place on the baking sheet. Roast for 15-18 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and no longer pink inside. Serve immediately.

Naptime Recipe Serving ideas

If you don’t have pesto on hand simply cover the salmon with a layer of creme fraiche, that will keep in the moisture and flavor of the salmon you don’t want to lose when roasting in the oven.

Naptime Reviews

We are still working on my daughter’s introduction to salmon, so far she seems to like the rice that I usually serve it with!!
