Salmon With Pesto Crust
25 mins (prep 10, cooking 15)
8 ingredients
4 servings
My Dads fiancee gave this recipe to me when we were visiting in England recently. I cooked this the other day using wild alaskan salmon(found in Walmart,can you believe!) And it was superb,I made my own pesto as my garden is full of basil. Also I cant buy creme fraiche locally so I made my own by adding lemon juice to heavy cream until thickened.
