Roasted Salmon with Carmellize with ApplePesto

We eat alot of fish in our house-mostly letf over from years of leaving in the east coast, I love this recipe,

Roasted Salmon with Caramelized Apple-Almond Pesto:

Salmon is full of Omega-3 fatty acids. While it's pricier than other varieties of fish, its nutritional benefits make it worth the price tag. This recipe costs $5.79 to make. 30 Minutes to Prepare and Cook

12 ounces salmon fillets
1 tsp unsalted butter
2 Granny Smith Apples, skin left on, cut into 1/4 inch dice
1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1/2 bunch Italian parsley, leaves only
Pinch black pepper
1/2 lemon, juiced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place parsley leaves in a blender; puree, adding lemon juice and warm water until the mixture forms a paste. Season with black pepper. Heat a small sauce pan and add butter. Once butter has melted and is foaming, add apples and cook for 3 minutes. Remove apples from the heat and add the almonds and parsley pesto; toss to combine. Place the salmon, skin side down on a roasting pan. Layer the pesto over the fish; roast for 12-15 minutes or until the meat is firm and just starting to flake.Makes 3 three ounce servings with 1/4 cup of apples and pesto per serving.
