  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil for the pasta.
  2. Spread the pesto over the salmon fillets.
  3. Place the aluminium tray with the salmon under the grill for around 15 minutes until the salmon is cooked through. You can also bake the salmon in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius for around 15 minutes.
