Reader Recipe: Salmon with Puff Pastry and Pesto

I was checking out all the great recipes in the Food & Entertaining channel, when I came across this colorful salmon with puff pastry and pesto that TeamSugar member rlveronica cooked up. It's simple to make, and whips up in no time at all. It's also quite colorful and flavorful and is bound to be a hit. To cook up this meal for dinner tonight,
