Pesto Salmon and Italian Veggies in Foil


Pesto Salmon and Italian Veggies in Foil | Cooking Classy

What’s not to love about dinners in foil right? Easy to make, easy clean up, and they taste delicious! This Pesto Salmon with Italian Veggies is no exception! It’s full of flavor and you end with perfectly baked salmon. I had actually never added pesto to my salmon until this recipe and I absolutely loved it and will combine the two again and again!

The other way I want to try this next time is with asparagus in place of the green beans which I think I’ll like even more, it’s just that I already did a salmon and foil recipe with asparagus so I wanted to switch things up and use something different. Not everyone loves asparagus as much as I do. The green beans are delicious but the one draw back is that unless you want them pretty crisp tender then you need to parboil them first so they will be done the same time as the salmon (the asparagus doesn’t need to be partially cooked first).

Also, for the record I blanched my basil just to keep it nice and green for photos but over the years I’ve decided I don’t like blanched basil for pesto because the flavor is not as robust, plus I have to up the amount of basil to come close to the same intensity of flavor as the non-blanched. The easiest route here would be store-bought basil but during the summer when theres plenty of fresh basil around I definitely recommend going with homemade.  Read more »
