Roasted Salmon with Pesto Vegetables

Impressive enough for a romantic dinner but simple enough for any level of chef, this recipe is packed with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. The American Heart Association advises that eating salmon and other omega-3-rich foods twice a week can have benefits that even extend beyond your heart.

2 bell peppers, thinly sliced
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
2 tbsp. olive oil
4 6-oz skinless salmon fillets
Kosher salt
Black pepper
¼ cup pesto

Heat oven to 450°F. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the peppers and onion with the olive oil. Nestle salmon fillets in the mixture. Season with ¾ tsp salt and ¼ tsp black pepper.
