Grilled Pesto Salmon

Grilled Pesto Salmon

We prefer the flavor of refrigerated pesto found in the produce section of the supermarket to the shelf-stable, jarred pesto. But either will work in this recipe.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1 1/2 tablespoons sauce)


  • none Cooking spray
  • 4 none (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons commercial pesto
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine


1. Heat a large grill pan coated with cooking spray over medium heat.

2. Sprinkle fillets evenly with salt and pepper. Set aside.

3. Combine pesto and wine, stirring well.

4. Place fillets on grill pan, and grill 6 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve fish with pesto sauce.
