Arugula gives this pesto a deliciously peppery finish, which complements the richness of the salmon.
Serve with lemony broccoli and buttered orzo.

This was superb. For those who need a dairy free option to the traditional parmesan cheese, make your own pine nut parmesan (grind pine nuts till fine then add onion powder, garlic powder and nutritional yeast) and substitute it for the regular cheese. It makes the best pesto for those with dairy allergies.
Excellent! I put the salmon on the grill. Will definitely make this again.
This was a hit! Two kids (10 & 7) and one big kid (42) thought it was fabulous. It was hurricane Sandy the night we made it so no BBQ or grill available so I baked the salmon at about 400 for 15 minutes, just with a little salt and pepper and olive oil. Delish! I also used romano instead of parm just for a little extra kick. Nice & easy and gives your salmon a little something special for a weeknight.
Quite tasty! I cut the recipe in half for just the two of us but there was still plenty of pesto left over. I grilled the salmon. Good presentation!
