Tuesday's Recipe Swap: Baked Pesto Salmon

I love this recipe because it's healthy and takes less than 20 minutes to prepare & cook so it's perfect for a weeknight dinner.

1 lb. salmon (cut into 2 fillets)
2 tbsp pesto
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp olive oil

What to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray Pam/cooking spray on baking sheet.

Rinse salmon under cold water and place on baking sheet. Mix olive oil, garlic and pesto in a small bowl. Use basting brush to coat salmon with pesto/garlic/oil mixture.

Bake 16-18 minutes.

I usually serve with steamed broccoli, asparagus, or a vegetable medley.
