Pesto Red Pepper Salmon

Pesto Red Pepper Salmon

This turned out to have fantastic flavor and it’s a super easy way to spruce up a salmon dish!

pesto salmon complete


  • 2 salmon filets
  • pesto (enough to coat the tops of the salmon)
  • 1 packet of red pepper flakes (the small packets you get when you order pizza!)
  • 1 tomato, sliced


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Coat salmon in pesto, then sprinkle red pepper flakes on top.  Lastly, place sliced tomatoes evenly on top.  I covered a pan in tinfoil (just for easier cleanup), but you can always just cook on the pan.  Place the salmon in the oven for 15-20 minutes (or until cooked all the way through) and serve!  I served it with gnocchi (since I had some homemade pasta sauce leftover) and broccoli!
