This recipe is courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis on Food Network. She is my favorite, so expect to see many of her recipes shared here. This one, though...ahhh it is one of my all time favorites!It is so fresh and flavorful. Besides you really can't beat how quick & easy this is!

What You Need:
4 pieces of purchased puff pastry, cut to fit one piece of salmon- (Generally found in the freezer section near the frozen pie crusts).
4 (4 to 6-ounce) pieces salmon
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup pesto- (homemade is great, store bought works too)
2 tomatoes, sliced


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

On a foil-lined baking sheet, place the 4 pieces of puff pastry. Also place the 4 pieces of salmon on the sheet with the pastry, being careful to make sure they are not touching. Sprinkle each piece of salmon with 1 tablespoon of the sliced almonds. Bake for 10 minutes.

To serve, place each piece of puff pastry on a plate. Top each puff pastry with 1 tablespoon of pesto. Top the pesto with 2 slices of tomatoes each. Top the tomatoes with the salmon and serve.
