Salmon is perfect for a Fit Lifestyle! It has high levels of Omega-3, which is essential for healthy brain, heart, eyes - even skin and hair! I always have packages of frozen salmon in my freezer (no need to thaw before baking) so I can make a quick, delicious and healthy meal in minutes! Buy wild caught fish whenever possible, it has more vitamins and minerals than the farmed versions.

4 salmon steaks (4-6 ounces each)
½ cup pesto (link to the pesto recipe)
½ cup grated Parmesan or Pecorino cheese
1 lemon (zest and juice)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and put salmon in an oven safe baking dish. Combine pesto, cheese, lemon juice and zest together, then spread over the top of salmon. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until done. Serve with your favorite steamed veggies or salad for a light and healthy summer meal!

Tip: When baking salmon, estimate 10 minutes per inch of thickness: measure at the thickest point, and the Salmon should flake when done!
