On a foil lined baking pan, lightly drizzle each salmon filet with olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Spread each filet with a dollop (tablespoon or so) of pesto and set aside to "marinate" for about 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place salmon in oven and immediately reduce heat to 425 degrees and roast/bake for 12 minutes. Remove salmon from oven and immediately cover tightly with foil for an additional 10-15 minutes to complete the cooking out of the oven under the foil cover. Enjoy!
