Preheat Oven:

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

Prepare Salmon:

Pat the salmon fillets dry with a paper towel. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Mix Pesto Marinade:

In a small bowl, mix the basil pesto, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper to create the marinade.

Coat Salmon:

Brush the pesto marinade over each salmon fillet, ensuring they are well-coated on all sides.

Bake:

Bake the salmon in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork and reaches an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C).

Broil (Optional):

If you prefer a slightly crispy top, you can broil the salmon for an additional 2-3 minutes until the edges are golden brown.

Garnish:

Garnish the baked pesto salmon with fresh basil if desired.

Serve:

Serve the salmon with lemon wedges on the side for a zesty touch.
