Wow wow wow this dish is embarrassingly easy, but it will impress guests at a dinner party and even please your picky toddler!
Yields 4 servings
4 salmon filets
Freshly cracked pepper
1 cup of premade pesto (you can make your own if you are feeling fancy!)
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees
Pat the salmon dry to remove any moisture so it roasts in the oven. Sprinkle with a large pinch of freshly ground pepper. Brush on the pesto sauce so that the top and sides are covered
Roast until cooked through, about 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness
Squeeze lemon juice on top once it's done and enjoy immediately!
Serve with spaghetti squash mash - you can find that recipe here!
