Whenever I'm not sure what to make for dinner I usually pick 2 or 3 ingredients that I have, put them into google search and let the ideas come to me. This was the first hit I got when I put in salmon and basil pesto recipe. Matt and I both really liked it.
When I'm in a rush it's nice to buy the prepackaged fish entrees, but I really like finding new recipes and making them myself. Fish may be my new favorite meat to work with.
- Pescetarians: One whose diet contains fish, but no meat. They eat fish and other seafood, but no mammals or birds. I never hear people say, "I'm a pescetarian". But I always hear people say, "I'm a vegetarian. But I eat fish!"....
- 2 4-6 oz salmon fillets
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 4tbsp basil pesto
- 6 small tomatoes, sliced or halved
- handful of four cheese blend
Top with cheese. Fold over sides and double the seams and ends so it is sealed completely. Place on preheated baking sheet and bakes for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let it sit for 2-3 minutes. Unfold the foil carefully and serve immediately.
We just had it with white rice and a small side salad. We loved this, and Matt even ate some of the warm tomatoes! (warm tomatoes are not his thing) Whoa.
