Balsamic Broccolini & Pesto Salmon


The sultry combination of pesto and balsamic makes for a taste sensation you can’t resist 

Balsamic Broccolini & Pesto Salmon


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 bunches broccolini, halved lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon Harris Farm caramelised balsamic vinegar
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1/2 cup prepared pesto 
  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced


    1. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Place salmon skin side down on grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
    2. In a small bowl, combine the pesto, onions, lemon juice and garlic. Carefully spoon some of the pesto mixture over salmon. Grill 15-20 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting occasionally with remaining pesto mixture. 
    3. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Cook half the broccolini, turning occasionally, for 3 minutes or until bright green and tender crisp. Transfer to a serving plate. Repeat with another teaspoon of the oil and the remaining broccolini.
    4. Combine the vinegar and remaining oil in a small jug. Drizzle over the dressing across the fish and broccolini.
    5. Serve with mashed potato or your preferred side.
