    Pesto Salmon

    1/2 cup basil leaves
    2 tbs parmesan cheese, freshly grated
    2 cloves garlic, peeled
    1/2 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
    1 lemon, juiced
    3 tbs olive oil
    12 ounces fresh salmon
    1 lemon
    1/3 cup unsalted pistachios, shelled and finely chopped

    To make pesto, combine basil, parmesan, garlic, pepper, and lemon juice in a food processor. Pulse until combined, then pulse while drizzling in olive oil until reaching a thickened pesto consistency.
    To make salmon, preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with foil and place salmon on top of foil.
    Squeeze lemon over salmon. Spread 1/4 cup of pesto on top of salmon, then press on pistachios.
    Bake for 8 to 10 min, depending on thickness of salmon. Turn oven up to broil and place under broiler for 5 to 8 min, or until top is crispy and salmon is cooked through to desired temperature. Serves 4
