Salmon with Pesto

Ingredients


(serves two)
2 fillets of fresh salmon, 1 bunch of asparagus, 2 potatoes, 300gr of cherry tomatoes (about 8oz)
2-3 tbsp of pesto (I bought it but you can easily make it too, I have tried this recipe and loved it, I added parmesan cheese to it)
Salt, pepper, olive oil to season

Hot to make it


The method is as you can imagine beyond easy. 
Preheat oven to 180º - 200º (350F - 400F) mine is a very old oven but I would say it corresponds to that. Place your salmon fillets in a baking pan (skin side down), drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Cook for about 8 minutes, take the pan out and add the asparagus and tomatoes, drizzle with oil and add salt and pepper too. Coat your salmon with some pesto. Cook for a further 8-10 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork and the veggies are nicely cooked. 

While your salmon is in the oven, wash the potatoes, cute them in chunky bits, boil them for 10 - 13 minutes, drain them and cook them lightly on medium heat in a small pan (add some olive oil), while cooking crush them softly. 
Serve and enjoy a uber healthy and delicious meal. Perfect for a summer soiree.
