Salmon with Almond Pesto

We take no responsibility should this recipe lead you to enjoy too much salmon!

Wild Salmon with Almond Pesto

Serves 4

Olive oil spray (optional)

2/3 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro or fresh basil

4 tablespoons fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth

3 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup sliced almonds

3 tablespoons shredded or grated Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade mix (or salt-free garlic-herb blend)

4 (6 oz) Vital Choice Wild Salmon fillets

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or lightly spray with olive oil.

  • In a food processor or blender, process the cilantro or basil, chicken broth, 2 tablespoons almonds, cheese and herb blend for 15‒20 seconds, or until slightly chunky.

  • Place the fillets about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Spread the pesto evenly over the top of the fillets. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup almonds.

  • Bake for 8‒10 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork.
