This morning I had the pleasure of presenting the following recipe on CBC's Weekend Morning Show with host Ismaila Alfa. The Wild Caught Sockeye Salmon is in season now and available at Gimli Fish. Garlic Scapes are also now in season and found in our farmer's markets.
Garlic Scape Pesto on Sockeye Salmon
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 Tbsp. fresh lime or lemon juice
1/4 lb. scapes
1/2 cup olive oil
Salt to taste
Optional: ground almonds or walnuts ~ 1/4 cup
Purée scapes and olive oil in a food processor until smooth. Stir in Parmesan and lime or lemon juice and season to taste.
Spread pesto over salmon fillet, about 1/4 inch thick. Bake in 400ºF oven for about 10 - 12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.
