Baked Salmon with Basil Pesto and Tomatoes

We made this before really good home grown tomatoes are coming in and we know this would be soooo much better with a home grown tomatoes.
2 salmon fillets about 6 oz each
2 tsp. olive oil
4 tsp basil pesto (we bought some from Sams but later this year we are going to try the real thing.)
we used 1 Roma tomato.
Preheat oven to 450
Tear two pieces of foil big enough to wrap salmon with some overlapping.
Place 2 tsp. of oil on foil in center place salmon on top of oil.
Spread each piece of salmon with 2 tsp each then arrange tomatoes on top.
Wrap other piece of foil on top and seal edges.
Place packet on baking sheet and cook 15 minutes
Remove from oven and let sit 2-3 minutes. Open carefully and serve while salmon and tomatoes are hot.

We've only gotten about 6 small ones so far.

Sounds good.
