2. Using a fork mash it all up until you have a nice smooth consistency. Next, add 4 salmon fillets onto a baking sheet. Mine were about 7 oz each.

3. Now season each fillet with some salt and pepper. Then, drizzle about 1 tbsp of fresh lemon juice over the salmon fillets.

4. Now using a cookie scoop scoop out mounds of the pesto butter mixture and place two scoops onto each salmon fillet.

5. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 to 12 minutes.
