Summer Pesto Baked Salmon Recipe — Just Four Ingredients!

Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Markio Knives

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!

Summer Fresh Pesto Recipe In Just FOUR Ingredients!

Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Mariko Sink

Every Saturday morning, I hit my local farmers and stock up on fresh produce for the week. My favorite purchase is always the huge bunches of Basil – and have started adding it to everything; soup, scrambled eggs, champagne - even my floral arrangements have sprigs of basil because the smell is incredible!

Basil has tons of health benefits: it reduces inflammation, relieves allergies and boosts our immune system! Here is a quick pesto recipe that tastes so fresh and delicious with everything, you’ll never buy the preservative filled type in a jar again!

4 cups fresh basil
1 cup Pignoli (pine nuts)
1 cup Pecorino Romano Cheese
¾ cup olive oil

Add all ingredients to a food processor (or blender) and pulse until combined and smooth. Serve over your favorite pasta (I love the gluten-free brown rice noodles) or as a marinade for your favorite meat– and enjoy!

Love salmon? Check out my 4 Ingredient recipe tomorrow for Pesto Baked Salmon using your fresh pesto!
