Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and place puff pastry on sheet so that they are not touching. Salt and pepper the salmon, then sprinkle almonds on the top and place salmon on the same baking sheet - not touching each other or the puff pastry.

Bake in oven for 10 minutes. When done, place a piece of puff pastry on each place. Spread 1-2 Tbs. pesto on each piece. Lay sliced tomatoes on the pesto. Place salmon on top and serve.Recipe adapted from Salmon with Puff Pastry and Pesto by Giada DeLaurentiis.

  • It was very easy to make, and very delicious. I substituted tomato pesto in place of the tomato slices, and find that even spaghetti sauce could be used. Seasoning the fish with lemon pepper seasoning before cooking instead of just salt and pepper gives it zing, too, and as a finishing touch, I drizzled honey over the top as I served it with some sautéed spinach as a side. I will DEFINITELY be making this again!

  • The Salmon with puff pastry recipe says to "place a piece of puff pastry on each place". Did they mean plate? I don't get it.
