Zesty Mango & Pistachio Summer Pesto on Oven Steamed Salmon (Foil parcels)

A Salmon fillet steamed in foil in the oven (to keep it moist) then presented on a plate topped with fresh ingredients blended to a paste like topping that has a crunch from the Pistachio that goes well with the soft flesh of the fish and sweetness of the mango. I had these ingredients and wanted to do something different with the fish as the family think fish can get boring so i coloured and crunched it up. I hope you like it.
