    Easy recipe. I’ve had more success baking the filets at 350oF for 30 min however. Don’t skimp on the pesto.

    Excellent Salmon, served with white rice. I added a couple of minutes to the cooking time.

    Salmon tasted great. The only negative about this recipe is the cook time. I needed to cook the salmon 10 minutes over the recommended time for it to be fully cooked through.
