30 minute meal: Pesto Mustard Salmon


This is probably my favourite and the simplest 30 minute meal I've ever made. 
I was first introduced to this by my friend, who raved extensively about how easy and delicious it was. And boy, was she right. It was so good I made it every single day the week I learned the recipe. 

It takes only 5 minutes to prepare and you even have time to take a shower while waiting for the salmon to bake. 
Multitasking at its very best, if I must say so myself.  


I know that it might not look the most presentable, but trust me - the pesto and seed mustard blends into this beautiful, out-of-this-world flavour. Combined with the perfectly moist, melt-in-your-mouth salmon (that seems so hard to reproduce when using a pan)? Fool proof guide to heaven. 


Now for the recipe...

1. Preheat oven to 375F
2. Mix one teaspoon of pesto + one teaspoon of seed mustard 
3. Spread it on top of the salmon
4. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes depending on the size of your salmon 

PS - If you're lazy? You can even line your pan with aluminium foil, that way you don't even have to worry about cleaning afterwards. 

Can I say, best damn recipe ever?
