walnuts

arugula

basil

more

1/4 cup walnut halves

2 cups loosely packed fresh arugula (2-1/2 oz.)

1 cup loosely packed fresh basil (about 1/2 oz.)

3 Tbs. freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

1 medium clove garlic

5 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil; more for the grill pan

Kosher salt

4 6- to 8-oz. skinless salmon fillets

Freshly ground black pepper

In a small skillet over medium heat, toast the walnuts, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and a shade darker, about 5 minutes. Let cool slightly on a plate, about 3 minutes, and then transfer to a food processor. Add the arugula, basil, Parmigiano, and garlic and process until the mixture is very finely chopped, about 1 minute. With the motor running, slowly add 4 Tbs. of the oil until well combined. If you like, add 1 Tbs. water to thin the pesto. Transfer to a bowl and season to taste with salt.

Heat a lightly oiled grill pan over medium-high heat. Rub the salmon fillets all over with the remaining 1 Tbs. oil. Sprinkle all over with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Put the fillets on the grill pan, skinned side up, and cook until well marked, about 5 minutes. Flip and continue to cook until opaque in the center, about 5 minutes more. Serve with the pesto.

serving suggestions

Serve with lemony broccoli and buttered orzo.
