Step by Step method

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F (176 C)

2. Take four salmon fillets (do NOT use salmon steaks!) of about 6-7 ounce. each and put them on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with Pam or brushed with olive oil to prevent sticking.

3. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of Butoni pesto (in the grocery store refrigerated section) onto the top of each filet and spread evenly.

4. Take the pistachios (shell the nuts, put in a baggie and whack with the side of a meat tenderizer/pounder) and cover the pesto with them. The amounts of pesto and pistachios depend on the size of the fillets, so use your judgment here.

5. Bake for about 20-22 minutes until done.

6. Serve immediately with roasted baby red potatoes and asparagus. If desired.
