Easy Pesto Salmon
Healthy, easy oven baked Pesto Salmon with lemon. Only five ingredients needed for this tasty, rich, and satisfying salmon dish ready in under 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400*F.
Rub one side of the salmon with olive oil (this step is only for skinless salmon).
Arrange the salmon fillets in a baking dish or baking sheet with the oiled/skin side down.
Rub one tablespoon of pesto over the top of each salmon fillet. Squeeze the lemon juice over pesto. Sprinkle the salmon with salt.
Transfer salmon to preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes. Turn the oven to broil and broil the salmon for 5-8 minutes until salmon is done and pesto is lightly browned. Enjoy!
*You can use skin-on or skinless salmon:
Place the salmon skin side down in the baking dish. If using salmon with skin, you don't need to use olive oil.
If using skinless salmon, I recommend rubbing one side with oil and placing the salmon in the baking sheet oil-side down.
