Pesto Topped Salmon recipe

Pesto, olive and breadcrumb topped salmon

Salmon fillets are nice enough but the addition of a topping turns them into a real treat. This dish can be put together very quickly and if you already have some breadcrumbs made up (I use frozen) then it takes almost no time at all.


Serves: 2

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 2 tbs pesto
  • 1 handful breadcrumbs
  • 8 olives, halved
  • olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven and a greased baking tray to 200°C.
  2. Mix the pesto with the breadcrumbs.
  3. Top the salmon fillets with half of the pesto mixture.
  4. Place the olives on top of the salmon and push them into the pesto mixture.
  5. Top with the remaining pesto and place onto the preheated baking tray.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes depending on the thickness of your salmon fillets.
