    where is the creamy pesto recipe?

    This is a quick, easy, and delicious way to cook salmon. Just make sure you don’t overcook it, which is easy to do with fish. Very flavorful, especially if you add the cream pesto sauce on top. Definitely will be repeating this one! Yum!

    This looks good. However, the recipe name says grilled salmon, but the actual directions are for baking! :) I’m coming up with grilling recipes for a cooking class and was looking specifically for grilled foods, which is why I mention it.

    This Salmon recipe was sooo delicious! My husband and I both loved it and will definitely make it again.

    This is fantastic. Salmon came out flaky and moist, pecans were a nice added crunch, though I may toast them first next time. Thanks to Taryn M. for suggesting the pesto on top – that was excellent! Will definitely make this one again soon.

    Does this recipe work with other fish, like tilapia as well? Or does it specifically have to be salmon?

      Sara – I haven’t tried it with tilapia, but I have a feeling it’d be delicious.

    When do you put the pesto sauce on? Before you bake it or after?

    Silly question – meal plan just has the salmon, no sides. Is that intentional?

    • Neely

      stephanie – Which number meal plan? Probably not intentional, no…

    This was good. I fried the skin for a couple of minutes before baking to make it a bit crispier. The pecans were beautiful as well.
