Mom's Menu: Salmon Steaks w/ Pesto

  • 2 salmon steaks
  • lemon
  • basil
  • garlic
  • sun-dried tomato
  • olive oil
  • parmesan cheese
  • piece of bread

  1. Line a baking pan with foil. Spray with Pam

  2. Squeeze a 1/2 lemon over salmon. You can grate the zest over it too. Never too much lemon.

  3. Now - the pesto. I had some basil & garlic & some sundried tomatoes in oil in a jar.
    I combined the basil leaves. a few cloves of garlic, the toms, a bit of olive oil, & some parmesan cheese in a small blender.

  4. Make some breadcrumbs from a piece of bread.( 2 T) Mix 1 T with about 2 T of the pesto (you can buy pesto in a jar too ) Spread this over the salmon.

  5. Mix about 1 T of grated parmesan or romano with the next T of breadcrumbs. Put this on top of the pesto. Then - grate about another T of the cheese all over the fish.

  6. Bake this at 450 for about 20 min. Use more lemon over it if you wish.

The pesto is excellent - salty & garlicky
