  • 4 salmon filets the good ones!
  • olive oil for brushing
  • sea salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste

Pesto -

  • 1 cup peas (totally ok to use frozen peas that have been thawed)
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 lemon juiced and zest
  • cup olive oil
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • Preheat the oven to 450° F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the salmon skin-side down on the baking sheet. Brush each filet with a little olive oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on thickness.
  • Meanwhile, pulse all the ingredients for the pesto in a food processor. If you like your pesto a little thinner, add more oil! once the salmon is cooked through, dollop a big spoonful of pesto on top.
