I used Cincinnati’s Spicy Olive gourmet ingredients in this recipe. . .to substitute, use traditional Italian spices like rosemary, garlic, basil, and oregano. . .
–salmon fillet (size of 2 decks of cards, one-half pound)
–basil pesto (ready-prepared; 3 tablespoons blended with 2 tablespoons water)
–balsamic vinegar (2 tablespoons)
–Tuscan herb olive oil (to substitute, sprinkle one-half teaspoon of rosemary, garlic powder, basil, and oregano atop the salmon and use extra virgin olive oil)
–lemon (3 squirts)
–clam juice (one-eighth cup)
–salt and pepper
1 – Place the salmon in a covered baking dish. Drench in lemon juice. Pour in the clam juice.
2 – Season the salmon with salt and pepper to taste. Spread basil pesto on top. Then pour a ribbon of balsamic vinegar down the length of the salmon fillet. Finish, generously, with olive oil.
3 – Microwave on high for 3 minutes.
4 – Serve the salmon with sauce hot.
