Perfectly timed what with all the fall apples! I never cared for basil pesto; I like this parsley version. The sweetness of the apples is a great complement to the saltiness of the salmon. Submitted by:

I'll try this! I've often just sauteed thinly sliced apples and pears in a little butter with salt and pepper. Then you can put the fruit over the salmon when the salmon comes off the broiler -- or just have the sauteed fruit on the side for the salmon purist. Serve with couscous for a fast meal.

The idea is good but the topping needed more fat - butter, olive oil, or butter with olive oil, to make it cook down into a cohesive combination. One tablespoon of any of these makes a big difference. Submitted by:

Haven't tried the receipe, and will omit butter when do. Salmon is oily enough. Plus, omitting the butter will reduce the bad fats. Lookin forward to experimenting w/oils.

Carmelize onion - fry finely chopped onion. Best flavour w/butter, can carmelize w/some oils too.
