    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 Recipe #126611.

    Oh, my gosh!! This was so incredibly easy and inexpensive and tasty!! I, too, had a prepared pesto, so I can only imagine the homemade is a gazillion times better! I served it with sauteed spinach and treated myself to a yummy and healthy dinner! Can't wait to make it again.... Thank you, Loves2Teach!

    Yum! I didn't use the bacon bits, and subbed cilantro for the basil... because I had some and I love it. Perfect crust and just right salmon. Thanks for a good recipe!
