One Pan Herb Crusted Salmon with Roasted Vegetables



1 1/2 pounds salmon

1 bunch parsley

1 bunch chives

1 bunch basil

2 lemons

1 handful of pine nuts

cherry tomatoes


broccoli (or broccolini)

olive oil

salt & pepper, to taste



In a blender, blitz the herbs, zest & juice of 1 lemon, olive oil, nuts, and salt and pepper until a paste forms. (don't worry if it is smooth or coarse)


Preheat oven to 350F degrees. 


Place salmon and vegetables on a sheet pan.


Spread the pesto paste over the salmon, and lay some slices of lemon on top. 


Drizzle the vegetables with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt & pepper.


Place pan in the oven to bake "until done" Look for a deep pink color and firm flesh that springs back when lightly poked. 


Enjoy straight from the oven, or serve cold on a salad. You could also mix leftovers with a bit of mayo and celery to make a salmon salad that would be great for lunch!
