Garlic Pesto-Crusted Salmon

If you love garlic, you’ll love this!

Recipe: Garlic Pesto-Crusted Salmon

2 salmon filets (double recipe if you want to serve more)

1/2 cup fresh basil leaves

1/4 cup pine nuts

~4 TBSP fresh cilantro

2-3 cloves garlic

1/4 cup olive oil

1 TBSP lemon juice

salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pulse all ingredients (except salmon) in a food processor until minced (you want little bits, not smooth). Put the salmon and the pesto mixture into a Ziploc bag and refrigerate for at least a 1/2 hour. Remove from bag, smear the pesto mixture left in the bag onto the salmon and place the salmon (skin-side down) onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for about 12-14 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily.
