Roasted Tomato Walnut Pesto Salmon

Saturday, May 31, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily! If salmon is what you like, salmon is what you will get! Take a look!


2-4 oz salmon fillets
2 Tbsp of walnut pesto
2-3 slices of tomato
1 tsp of dried basil (or fresh minced basil)
¼ tsp of black pepper

Walnut Pesto~

2 oz fresh basil leaves (about 1 cup)
1 cup walnut halves
½ cup olive oil
3 large garlic cloves


Pre-heat oven to 400 F. Grease a tin pan with olive oil spray. Place all pesto ingredients into a food processor and blend pesto until a spreadable consistency. Place salmon fillets in the pan and cover each fillet with 1 Tablespoons of pesto. Top salmon with tomato slices and sprinkle with dried basil and black pepper. Bake salmon until opaque in the center, about 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!

Thought of the day~ Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work! Have a healthy day! Hugs, Rose:) emoticon
