Salmon with Pesto, Potatoes And Green Beans

A lovely and easy spring recipe, inspired by our trofie al pesto, a traditional Genoese pasta served with boiled green beans and potatoes, seasoned with plenty of fresh pesto….Really delicious!!!

For this recipe I am using salmon instead of pasta and then I added more vegetables with some lemon juice to lighten up the dish, as salmon is quite an oily fish.
This is definitely a very healthy dish, packed with fibre and wonderful nutrients like vitamin K, C, vitamins B, manganese and omega-3 fatty acids (just to name a few).
