Salmon with Puff Pastry and Pesto
*4 pieces of purchased puff pastry, each cut to be just larger than a piece of salmon
*4 (4 to 6-ounce) pieces salmon
*1/4 cup sliced almonds
*1/4 cup purchased pesto
*2 tomatoes, sliced
Preheat the oven to 400.
On a foil-lined baking sheet, place the 4 pieces of puff pastry. Also place the 4 pieces of salmon, being careful to make sure they are not touching. Sprinkle each piece of salmon with 1 tablespoon of the sliced almonds. Bake for 10 minutes.
To serve, place each piece of puff pastry on a plate. Top each puff pastry with 1 tablespoon of pesto. Top the pesto with 2 slices of tomatoes each. Top the tomatoes with the salmon and serve.
This is a recipe from Everyday Italian on the Food Network. I usually make two servings... this probably isn't great as a leftover
