Cashew Pesto Wild Sockeye Salmon with Heirloom Tomato

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time30 mins
Servings: 10 -12


  • 2-2.5 pound Wild Sockeye Salmon filet we buy at Costco
  • 3 medium heirloom tomatoes
  • 1 cup finely ground cashews
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1-2 large bunches fresh basil
  • 2 tsp. pepper
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 4 tsp. honey
  • 4-5 tsp. garlic
  • 6 tsp. lemon juice


  • Rinse and dry Wild Sockeye Salmon filets. Layer two sheets of foil together, large enough for the salmon, and fold up the sides to make a tray. Place filet on foil. (We used 3 trays, so 6 pieces of foil).
  • To make the pesto, in a food processor, combine basil, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, honey, and lemon. Process until smooth. Add in finely ground cashews and continue to blend until smooth.
  • Spread pesto evenly on fish. Slice tomatoes and place on top.
  • Place on grill at 300 degrees heat, for about 10 minutes, or until white areas appear on the top of the salmon. Cooking time will depend on thickness of fillet. Use the back of a spatula method to see if fish is done. (Press on the fish using the back of a spatula. If fish is firm, then it is done. If it is spongy, you need to keep cooking it:)
  • Remove from the grill and serve immediately!
