Coarse ground pepper and pesto rubbed salmon

Easy dinner for a tough day !!

I have been having a lot of busy hectic days lately.. Nature of the job I guess. But that should not mean dinner from a drive-through or frozen TV dinners..

Don’t get me wrong, I love an occasional carryout. But some days that just doesn’t cut it.

Especially if you have been cooped up in a room for 12 hrs straight and have been fueling yourself with coffee, processed pastries and high sodium food.. Ugh, you need something light, flavorful and healthy and more importantly, EASY !!!

So here you go.. You can also freeze this and bake it when needed.. Great prep ahead idea for a dinner party as well.

To serve 2

(2) about 8 Oz Salmon fillets

2 Tbsp OO
2 Tbsp Pesto paste
1 Tbsp black pepper
2 Cloves of garlic smashed
salt to taste

2 pats of butter

Rub the marinade on the salmon and let rest in the fridge covered for about 30 minutes.

On a cookie sheet, drizzle / spray some OO and arrange the salmon leaving some space between them. Add one pat of butter on each fillet. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Turn the oven to high broil and broil for about 2-3 minutes till you see some color on top of the fish.

Enjoy !!
