Lemon Pesto Salmon

Unreasonably easy especially if you get a jar of pesto from the store. I know it's cheating a bit, but I prefer the store's to mine. . .

Lemon Pesto Salmon

Ingredients:

1 Lemon
Pesto
Salmon Fillets
Salt
Pepper

Instructions:

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat oven to about 350°F.

Spoon about a tablespoon of pesto per salmon fillet onto the parchment paper. Season one side of the salmon fillet with salt and pepper, and squeeze some lemon juice over top. Place the salmon seasoned side down onto the pesto on the parchment. Season the other side of the salmon fillet with salt and pepper, squeeze of lemon, and then smooth some more pesto over the top of the fillet.

Zest some of the rind of the lemon over top of the salmon fillets and place one half of the lemon, cut side down onto the pan with the fillets.

Place in oven and bake for about 10 minutes. Squeeze the baked lemon over top, and serve.

Enjoy!

What was cooking one year ago?

Lemon and Herb Salmon (How similar these two are made me giggle)
