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'.
