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.

  1. Baked fish is very handy and and great if you do not want to do much washing up that day. Pesto and salmon are perfect matches. I am not aware the cookbook is named differently in the US.

  2. I love roasting salmon in a parcel like this–the texture turns out great. I’ll have to try it with pesto. Sounds delicious!
