Pesto Salmon Recipe [entry-title permalink="0"]

As promised, an easy weeknight meal for you seafood lovers! Salmon is a beautiful piece of fish, however pesto salmon is way better but I don’t think many people use salmon enough in weeknight meals. Some health benefits from eating this fish include; increase in cardiovascular health and brain function due to the omega-3 fats found in salmon, reduces the risk of macular-degeneration (eye disease), osteoarthritis and other inflammatory conditions.

Pesto Salmon Recipe

Anyways getting back to food talk, I’ve quickly dusted up some tasty buttered potatoes and serve it with a handful of rocket and toasted pine nuts which turn this humble salmon into a complete dish. This literally takes no more than 15 mins to whip up, provided that you have made up a batch of pesto, you can see my pesto recipe by clicking here. Have a go at this and let me know how good it tastes!
