We are trying to add at least one or two fish meals a week to the menu. My husband doesn’t really like the taste of the fish, so I look for mostly salmon recipes because it doesn’t taste too fishy. 

One day I had a half pot of leftover ricotta and a bit of pesto left, so mixed them together and got a new, tasty salmon dish out of it. 

This is a typical super quick dinner idea ready in under 15 minutes, ideal for busy weeknights or fast lunch prep.

Serve with vegetables of your choice.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. 

Season the salmon fillets with sea salt.

Place the salmon fillets on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for 10-15 minutes. 

Spread 2 tablespoons of ricotta and 1 tablespoon of pesto on the top of the salmon fillets evenly. 

Serve with salad or some green veggies.
