Salmon with Red Pepper Pesto

Ingredients:
 

  • 4 fresh or frozen sustainable salmon fillets
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup roasted red peppers
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 7 whole blanched almonds
  • 1 garlic clove

 


Preparation:
 

  1. Heat grill pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle fish evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Coat pan with cooking spray. Arrange fish in pan; cook for 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
  2. While the fish cooks, combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, bell peppers, and remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor, and process until smooth. Serve pesto over fish.
