Yep, that’s the way we Canadians do things (my husband is an honorary Canuck). Later that day, we all jumped on the dog sled and went to have tea with the queen.
Scoop an even portion of the pesto mixture over each salmon fillet.
Hmm…kind of looks like a Parmesan-covered bed of moss. There is actually salmon under there – I promise.
Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is just done. Don’t overcook it. I’d rather have a conversation about foreign policy with Britney Spears than eat dry, dense salmon. Well…you know what I mean.
Tip for checking the salmon: Stick a small paring knife in the center of salmon for 10 seconds. When you take it out, gently place the blade (the flat part – let’s avoid the lawsuits, people) against your upper lip. If it’s hot, the salmon is done.
