    AmyZoe's Note:

    I had some already made pesto in the fridge, so this was quick and delicious. I can't remember eating more delicious salmon. I doubled the recipe, and it was supposed to be leftovers but there weren't any. Recipe courtesy of Kalyn's Kitchen. Recipe adapted from Mark Bittman's Quick and Easy Recipes from the New York Times.
