Seriously it doesn’t get easier or more delicious than Salmon with Pesto and Feta.
This simple, three ingredient salmon dish is like hitting the jackpot of recipes.
It’s a perfect weeknight meal, yet also fancy enough to serve at a fancy dinner party.
I make a ton of Homemade Basil Pesto in the fall when I have more basil growing than I know what to do with.
I freeze it in small batches just to use in recipes like this.
Store bought pesto would work just as well.
How to Make Salmon with Pesto and Feta
This is 2 pounds of salmon that I cut into 4 pieces.
Just sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper.
Then spread some pesto on top and place on a lined baking sheet.
This goes into the oven at 425 degrees for 10 minutes.
Put some crumbled feta on top and place back into the oven for 2 more minutes.
Plus 2 more minutes under the broiler.
I wish I could tell you Salmon with Pesto and Feta was more complicated than that, but seriously that’s it!
When I make salmon with pesto and feta, I like to get extra salmon and meal prep a few salads.
I baked an extra half pound of salmon with olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, and Old Bay seasoning (12 minutes at 425 degrees).
Then I just put it top of one of those salad kits that they sell at the store.
Easy peasy lunch for the next two days for me 🙂
