It was a long day already. When we came home it was 6 pm. Both very tired and of course hungry.
Him: What's for dinner?
Me: I don't know. I gotta make something.
Him: I am in the mood for fish.
Me: Yeah. Fish can be done pretty fast.
Him: Can it be done in 30 min?
Me: Oh yes, less than that.
Him: Really? What will you be making?
Me: I have a lot of that cilantro pesto. I'll make my sister's green fish. That just takes 15 min.
Happy me and happy husband.
You need (For 3-4 servings):
1 lb salmon fillet (This recipe goes well with trout too.)
1 cup of my homemade Cilantro Almond Pesto
Salt for seasoning
Roasted almonds and chopped tomato for garnishing
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Line a baking tray with aluminum foil. Place the salmon fillets skin side down, season with salt and cover them with pesto.
Bake for 15-20 min depending on the thickness of your fillets or until the fish is flaky (check with a fork).
Serve garnished with some roasted almonds and freshly chopped tomatoes on the top.
