Pesto And Mascarpone Crusted Salmon Fillets

Pesto And Mascarpone 
Crusted Salmon Fillets
This is a recipe that I wasn't convinced would be as tasty as I found it to be.  It is absolutely wonderful and I almost forgot to photograph.  My suggestion for the recipe is, make certain that you drain excess oil from the pesto or the mascarpone will be too thin.
1-8 oz. container prepared pesto
1-8 oz, container mascarpone cheese
6-5 oz. salmon filles
salt and pepper
2 cups fresh bread crumbs
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Turn pesto into a strainer and let set over a bowl  and let drain for 10 minutes.  Stir pesto into mascarpone cheese.

Arrange salmon fillets on a parchment lined baking sheet and season with salt and pepper.  Divide the pesto cheese evenly among salmon fillets, spreading over entire surface.

Toss bread crumbs with parmesan cheese.   Divide the bread crumbs evenly among salmon fillets, pressing down lightly into pesto cheese.  Bake for about 20 minutes or until the breadcrumbs are golden brown and the salmon is just cooked through.
