  • 2 lbs salmon
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup basil pesto
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream


  1. Season salmon if you choose and either sear in a pan, then place in oven to cook until finished or grill. Keep warm if it finishes prior to the sauce.
  2. In the meantime, warm the olive oil in a saute pan until just warm and add pesto and heat on medium until it becomes more liquid.
  3. Add cream and half and half and bring to a gentle boil while whisking. Continue to cook over low heat stirring frequently until thickened.
  4. Add parmesan cheese and stir until melted.
  5. Serve salmon on a bed of the sauce.
