Guestpost: BBQ salmon fillets and a surprising pesto!

July 18, 2014
Who loves fresh salmon?  Who loves firing up the BBQ?  Who loves healthy, tasty and simple meals?  Me, me and me.  You too?  Well, I got you covered!
Today, I am virtually receiving Candice from Everybody loves pretty.  I am so happy to have my first guest post from a fellow  Canadian food blogger!  If you didn’t know about the blog, please head over there and discover a lot of healthy recipes and sweets too!
Do you remember I did send a little of Provence to Vancouver with my ratatouille recipe and now, we are getting some fresh salmon from Vancouver  in Toronto!
She also did a surprising pesto with carrots tops!  How original is that?
She did a batch a pesto ahead of time and used it on her fresh salmon for an easy week day recipe.  Candice is having an exiting summer: she got engaged and found a great job! Congratulations Candice and over to you…

 “Hello there!  My name is Candice, from the Vancouver food blog, Everybody Loves Pretty. Today is a very exciting day because I get to share a fabulous salmon  recipe on my favorite Eastern-Canadian food blog, Bon Appét’Eat!  It has been very hot over in Vancouver, so instead of using my oven, I have been BBQing up a storm!
This recipe is so very easy and extremely delicious!  It’s the perfect summer dinner that is very light and healthy to ensure you keep your bathing suit body!  I just started working full-time and have been trying to think up recipes that are quick and easy to make after getting home from a long day. This one definitely made the cut!
I recently went fishing when I went back home last weekend and actually caught this salmon.  It is definitely a treat to catch your dinner and eat it too! 😉  It certainly made it taste all that much better too!
