Whenever I interview a food personality, I try to slip in a question about their go-to items in their pantry and fridge. It’s always so interesting to hear what people say. Of course, it’s only fair that I answer the question myself too.
Here goes … In my freezer, there are a few things you will always find: shrimp (both cooked and uncooked ones!), super sweet corn, peas, ground beef, gzoya and … salmon. I buy frozen wild-caught filets whenever they go on sale. One grocery store here sells them individually wrapped and sealed, which makes them ultra-easy to grab and defrost for a meal, whether it’s a lunch for one or a dinner for four.
That was exactly what I did tonight for dinner. Grilled Pesto-Topped Salmon is as easy as it comes. With just two ingredients, it comes together and cooks in no time. Plus, the flavorful pesto makes for a fabulous filet.
Serve this with a green salad and pasta.
