Jamie says: As a weekend treat, I wanted to make myself a hot lunch. I decided to cook the salmon that I originally planned to use for a dinner and I made a…
It was a tasty lunch with good-for-you fats.
The salmon was nice and moist. The walnuts added a nice crunch, too.
It was a little messy, but sometimes, that’s half the fun!
Pesto Salmon Wrap
- 0.5 lb salmon fillet
- pesto sauce with basil, garlic, and pine nuts (Monterey Pasta Company)
- 2 slices tomato
- 1 slice onion
- 1 low carb high fiber whole wheat tortilla (Smart & Delicious)
- 1 1/2 cups pre-washed fancy greens- romaine lettuce, green tango, radicchio, and carrots (Fresh Express)
- 10 walnuts
- dash salt
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Rinse salmon, pat dry with a paper towel, and place on a baking sheet. Spread pesto on top of salmon. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked.
- Chop tomato and onion and place on a tortilla along with lettuce and walnuts. Top with salmon. Sprinkle with salt. Enjoy!
- Nutrition note: Dietary fat (that means fat in your food) is not bad. In fact, some fats are very good for you, such as the fat that is in the salmon, walnuts, and the canola/olive oil blend (from the pesto) in this wrap! Fat also helps you absorb nutrients, such as vitamins A, D, E, and K. How about that!
