Baked Salmon with Pesto

Fresh salmon is in season and not only is it healthy but it’s also very versatile. There are a lot of different ways to cook it, but my favorite is oven baked salmon in foil with pesto. In less than 30 minutes we have a great meal that is not only easy to make and tasty, but it looks great too. It’s perfect for busy weeknights, or if you want something that will look elegant for when you have guests, then this recipe is for you.
