I actually had this at a local grocery store. They were giving out samples and it was fabulous! A few salmon fillets, and just four other ingredients. Simple, quick, and delicious. You simply buy a small tub of pesto, or if you're adventurous, your own home made.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Broil fillets 4 inches from the heat for 4-6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness.
  3. Remove from broiler.
  4. Combine mayonnaise and pesto sauce, spread on fillets.
  5. Combine bread crumbs and parmesan. Sprinkle over pesto mayonnaise.
  6. Return to broiler for 1-2 minutes more, until lightly browned on top.

We love salmon, and this was a simple but utterly delicious way to prepare it. The pesto added great flavor to the fish.
