Baked Salmon with Pesto Foil Packet
This baked salmon with pesto foil packet is a fun and easy way to cook salmon besides the usual method of grilling or pan-frying. I saw this recipe from Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food cookbook (this is the title of the UK edition, in US the book is called Food Revolution), which is mainly why I started making my own pesto.
With some pesto in the fridge, you can whip up this gourmet-looking meal effortlessly. The food is wrapped in a foil parcel and after baking, I simply serve the parcel straight on a plate so that the cleaning up, just like the cooking, is totally fuss-free.
