RECIPE BACKSTORY
We first baked the salmon as directed in most cook books: 10 minutes for 1 inch thickness at a high oven temperature. But found that wasn't accurate, and the oven was too hot for the pesto sauce. So we lowered the temperature and extended the cooking time. We also love pesto, so we spread more than 3-4 tsp. Perfect
