Creamy Pesto Salmon

Another yummy way to serve salmon



  1. Place each fish fillet on squares of foil and divide the oil and spring onions between them. Squeeze a little lemon juice over each fillet.
  2. Fold the foil over the fish securely and bake in a pre-heated oven 375° F (200° C) for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. Gently heat together the crème fraiche, pesto and wine and pour over the fish.
  4. Serve with the cooked new potatoes and your choice of mixed vegetables.
