Turn your oven on to BROIL.
Place salmon portions on a parchment lined sheet pan, skin side down.
Brush each salmon portion with olive oil (or use the back of a spoon to spread the olive oil all over each salmon portion). Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Roast under the broiler for 3-4 minutes until salmon begins to form a slight brown crust.
Remove salmon from the oven and switch oven setting from BROIL to 425*.
Spread pesto on top of each salmon portion in a thick layer.
Return the salmon to the oven and bake for 7-10 minutes until cooked through (145*-150*). Salmon thickness will vary be careful not to overcook the fish.
Serve each portion of salmon with a generous spoonful of Cashew Pesto underneath.
