Fresh salmon fillets are marinated briefly with lemon juice and white wine. Then cooked with a thick layer of pesto which crisps up under the grill.
The pesto should get crispy enough, but you could also try sprinkling dried breadcrumbs on top of the pesto layer for added crunch.
Made it healthier. Very nice recipe. I don't think you need that much pesto, especially if you're looking for a healthier dish. It does keep it nice and moist, but the fat content in pesto is insane! Very easy to prepare, but not skimpy at all. Bravo! - 21 Jul 2008
It was very good, but I didn't get the pesto to form that crust. I'll have to set the grill to a higher temperature next time, I guess. - 05 Mar 2011
It was a nice , light dish but from the reviews I was expecting more. - 07 Jan 2017
