4 Ingredient Easy Lemon Pesto Salmon is a perfect weekday meal!
Does anyone else want to cook more fast, fresh and healthy meals this year? I know I do! I’ll be sharing some of my favorite quick meals and sides over the coming weeks to help you cook more at home this year.
Now I know how hard it can be to cook healthy food sometimes. You work long challenging days and you come home mentally and physical drained. You get home and feel like you just can’t do one more thing! Next time that happens to you, remember this simple Easy Lemon Pesto Salmon recipe.
I love this recipe because it is made with four ingredients. FOUR.
Stop by the store and pick up salmon, your favorite prepared pesto and lemon! The only other ingredient is olive oil, which you should already have on hand.
Even better if you just keep some of this stuff in your fridge and pantry. These are all items I keep in my pantry and freezer at all times, so I can throw this together for a quick meal.
The salmon only takes around 10 minutes to cook (depending on how thick your piece of fish is and how well done you want it.) You can literally go from kitchen to table in 15 minutes with this one.
Serve with your favorite sides or even just a simple salad.
It really doesn’t get any better than that for a weekday meal! Simple, fast, inexpensive and healthy.
I eat mostly plant based foods, but I am technically a pescatarian and enjoy a fish dish once or twice a week. This is one that’s often on the menu. The hubs also appreciates the break from the meat-less meals every once in a while.
I hope you enjoy this super simple meal as much as we do!
