Oven Roasted Salmon with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Glaze

  • Active Time 5m
  • Total Time 25m

Serves 4


  • 1/2 cup purchased sun-dried tomato pesto
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 pounds salmon fillet or 4 pieces, 1/2 pound each


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Combine the pesto, lemon zest and mustard in a small mixing bowl and mix to combine.

Arrange the fillets in a baking dish, skin side down, allowing some space between each fillet. Using a spatula, frost each fillet with equal amounts of the pesto mixture. Roast the salmon for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until just cooked, depending on thickness of fillets.

TO SERVE: Remove salmon from oven and place on a serving plate.
