      Fantastic! Title bit misleading, it's not roast salmon but pan fried, really, and cooking completed by baking in oven. Which I did not do out of saving time and hassle, turned out really good.

      Great fish recipe. I used the pesto crust and tilapia for the fish. Baked for 12 min. and it was perfect. Served with Cheese Tortellini Pesto Pasta Salad.
