4 Thoughts on “Pesto Baked Salmon

  1. So…I’m totally not a seafood person. We grew up on salmon in Washington as a child, and I got dreadfully sick of it.. Slowly, I’m trying to incorporate more seafood into my diet since Holistic Squid and others recommend it so vehemently, and this recipe makes my stomach grumble every time I see it! Just might have to give this one a whirl… Thanks, Katie! :)
