Impress your Mother in Law with this one....I did!!

We had my MIL and her husband over for dinner tonight and I made this Salmon dish and drunken fruit salad. She actually complemented me It was a big hit!!

Salmon with Puff Pastry and Pesto

Recipe courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis


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 degrees F.

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.

Mix Orange Liquer with honey and pout over fruit, stir and enjoy!

I meant to take pictures I really did but,  I had a hard enough time cooking with a toddler on my leg!  Argh!  Oh Well!
