Recipe: Quick Pepper Pesto Salmon
Salmon steaks or fillets.
Pepper Pesto – any make.
Sliced yellow or orange peppers (optional)
You can cook this in the oven, under the grill or in a frying pan.
Spread each piece of fish with pesto sauce on both sides to taste – like spreading a slice of bread.
If you have time, leave to marinade for half an hour before cooking for a stronger flavour.
To grill: Place fish in a metal dish, arrange the peppers around making sure they are coated with the pesto.
Cook on medium heat turning once.
To fry: As above but place everything in a frying pan and cook on medium heat.
Oven: In a baking tin with peppers on top of the fish. 180c fan, 350f, Gas 5, 200c Takes about 10 – 15 minutes depending on thickness of fish.
To Serve: Place on a warm plate, arrange sliced peppers on top if using, pour over juices.
Serve with salad, wholemeal bread, rice, or pasta. Works well with tuna steaks.
Tuna only takes a couple of minutes to cook in a frying pan. do not over cook it or it makes it dry. Tuna is delicious cooked 'medium rare'.
