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,
So easy to make! It's a great hit too! :)
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
4 pieces of purchased puff pastry, each cut to be just larger than a piece of salmon
4 (4 to 6-ounce) pieces salmon
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup purchased pesto
2 tomatoes, sliced
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
On a foil-lined baking sheet, place the 4 pieces of puff pastry. Also place the 4 pieces of salmon, being careful to make sure they are not touching. Sprinkle each piece of salmon with 1 tablespoon of the sliced almonds. Bake for 10 minutes.
To serve, place each piece of puff pastry on a plate. Top each puff pastry with 1 tablespoon of pesto. Top the pesto with 2 slices of tomatoes each. Top the tomatoes with the salmon and serve.
