Fuel for the Body! Salmon Dilly Pesto Style !

This is a fifth in a series of posts celebrating whole food – fresh food and creative ways to prepare it as fuel for your body.  

Fuel for the body! My all time favorite fish with my all time favorite mix of spices — how can you go wrong? I am sure we all have a favorite fish if we like fish at all. Chilean Sea bass, sole, halibut and tilapia are some of my favorites. But salmon — I LOVE salmon. Eating out you can always find a great salmon to try and we love salmon! Check out this post — salmon is a nutritional powerhouse!

The best part about salmon is how easy it is to cook. The most important thing for fish is that you don\’t overcook it because it will be dry and rubbery – so be sure not to cook any longer than 20-25 minutes.

Salmon Dilly Pesto Style!

Cover baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees.
