Grilled Salmon with Pesto......

This is beyond easy.  After squeezing the salmon filet with lemon juice, I spread my homemade pesto all over the top.  Wrapped the whole thing in a double layer of aluminum foil threw it on the grill and grilled it for 10 minutes.  This moist grilled salmon shared the plate with a  mixed green salad tossed with a simple lemon vinaigrette.  Delicious!

I enjoy trying to cook tasty healthy meals for my family and you can't get more healthy than salmon. This piece gave us three decent sized portions packed with omega-3 fatty acids. 
I'm feeling healthier already!!!!

  3. We love Salmon, too. It is just not so easy to find wild caught all the time, which is the only one I buy. Thanks for a new recipe idea. My family will like it with pesto.

  10. Everyone in my family loves salmon... so this will be a huge hit at my house.

    Why the double wrap of foil? To keep it from leaking?

    1. Hi Janet, I double wrap it so it won't get burned on the bottom. Thanks for visiting!

  19. Never thought of using pesto with salmon. Perfect time to give it a try as the basil plants are so big in the garden.
