Basil Salmon

1-1/2 cups fresh basil leaves
3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons Light Olive Oil
1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon plus 4 teaspoons shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)

For pesto, combine the basil, oil, garlic, pepper, lemon juice, salt and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese in a food processor; cover and process until finely chopped. Place the salmon in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Spread 2 tablespoons pesto over fillets. (Cover and refrigerate remaining pesto for another use.)

Bake, uncovered, at 400 for 20-22 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Makes 4 servings.
