If you have been a reader of my site for long, you know that I love easy recipes. We generally have salmon once a week. I am a lucky mom with kids who love it.
This recipe was inspired after eating at a local restaurant that served a dish with a pesto and honey sauce. Who knew that would be amazing!?
I knew this sauce would be amazing over salmon and boy was I right. Wait until you see how simple this is to create. And for the record, it was delish!
- 6-8 salmon fillets
- 1 (7 oz) container of pesto sauce
- 2 t honey
- 1 clove garlic or a spoonful of the jarred stuff
- handful of cashews, chopped
Mix the honey, pesto and garlic together.
Generously smear the pesto sauce over the salmon fillets.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until it is done all the way through.
Place your chopped cashews on a second baking sheet and pop them in the oven for about 5 minutes while the salmon is cooking. They will start to smell nutty.
Take them out of the oven after about 5 minutes and let them sit while the salmon finishes. (When the chopped cashews first come out of the oven they are soft. AS they sit they harden.)
Once the salmon is done remove it from the oven.
Top the fillets with some sprinklings of the chopped cashews.
Plate it up and enjoy.
We served our salmon over wild brown rice and with a side of broccoli. (Make sure you check out my recipe for making frozen veggies taste amazing.)
