Serves 4 (serving size: 1 fillet and 3 tablespoons pesto)

If you don't like the bite of raw garlic, drop the clove in boiling water for 1 minute to blanch, then proceed with the pesto.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat grill pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle fish evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Coat pan with cooking spray. Arrange fish in pan; cook for 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

Step 2

While the fish cooks, combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, bell peppers, and remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor, and process until smooth. Serve pesto over fish.

Step 3

Sustainable Choice: Look for salmon that's labeled "wild Alaskan," and you can be sure that you're getting a sustainable option.

Was delicious! Just added some brown sugar and salt to the pesto to offset the bitterness and turned out amazing!

Simple, flavorful, fast. Worthy of a special occasion primarily because of its tasty simplicity - would allow for plenty of time to focus on entertaining rather than cooking. I'll be keeping this one in my rotating file of weeknight meals.

Great recipe! Had to use cashews in place of the almonds (allergy). Was a nice sauce for the fish. Would be good on a sandwich too. Thanks Sunday Strategist.

This pesto was amazing and couldn't get enough of it. I did follow the advice of another reviewer and added the extra EVOO and chicken stock. I ended up making more to use the extra pesto for turkey sandwiches loaded with turkey bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato, and provolone on a ciabatta bun.
