Lemon Pesto Salmon


6 6 ounce pieces of raw wild salmon
1/4 cup fresh basil pesto
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper

Combine extra virgin olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and pesto. Season with sea salt and black pepper. Coat salmon generously on both sides. Season with sea salt and black pepper. Put on a prepared baking sheet pan or on the outdoor grill, skin side down.

Indoor grill:
Preheat broiler to high heat. Cook salmon for about 5 to 10 minutes or until just cook (don't over cook!). Remove from broiler. Brush with the pesto mixture. Serve hot.

Outdoor grill:
Preheat to medium high heat until it reaches 400 F. Grill salmon for about 5 to 10 minutes or until just cooked (don't over cook!). Brush with the pesto mixture. Serve hot.

Just to clarify, you coated the salmon with the pesto mixture before AND after you grilled it?
