I LOVE SALMON!
Thought I’d get that out of the way. Though I prepare salmon in various ways there are two recipes that are my “go-to” favorites, whether for company or just for me. I can’t take credit for coming up with this recipe – it is from Giada De Laurentiis, is super easy and absolutely delicious. I assemble mine a bit differently than she does and I’m showing the recipe for one serving.
Salmon with Puff Pastry & Pesto 1 serving
- puff pastry – cut just large than the piece of salmon
- 4-6 oz piece of salmon
- 1 T sliced almonds – toasted
- 2 T pesto
- sliced tomato
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and place the puff pastry on one side, the salmon on the other (not touching). Bake for 10 minutes.
To serve, place the puff pastry on the plate, top with the pesto – as shown below:
Now add the tomato slice(s), followed by the salmon and top with the almonds.
