Salmon with Puff Pastry and Pesto

Print Friendly and PDF
Here's a main dish that will surely please your guests.  It is so colorful, and each bite has a variety of flavors and textures.  I will definitely make this dish again.

1 box frozen puff pastry, thawed
4 salmon fillets
1/4 cup pesto
2 tomatoes, sliced
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted

Cut the puff pastry into rectangular pieces the same size as your salmon fillets.  Bake the puff pastry at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.  Set aside.  Season each piece of salmon with salt and pepper.  Bake at 425 degrees for 10-12 min. until done.

For each serving, place one puff pastry on the plate, top with 1 tablespoon of pesto, then 2 slices of tomatoes, top with the salmon, then the toasted almonds.   I drizzled balsamic syrup for added color, but that is optional.  Simply delicious.
