Pesto paradise

Originally published at breadcrumbss. Please leave any comments there.

Lately, I’ve been more than a little obsessed with pesto of every kind. I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to it, on which I pin all the different pesto recipes I’d like to try. It helps that pesto is such an easy sauce/condiment to make, is super freezeable and allows me to create a plethora of uncomplicated dishes for quick, weekday meals.

Pesto pasta

Pasta with pesto and a portion of baked salmon

I put it on pizza, use it as a salad dressing, mix it with pasta and use it as a marinade for baked salmon. All very yummy.

Of course, not all pestos are suitable for every dish. Experimenting is the name of the game and it’s fun – and delicious. I’ve tried Chubby Hubby’s laksa pesto with cashew (add the sriracha – trust me) and also concocted my own with coriander, laksa leaves, a bit of almond, garlic, chilli, fish sauce and ginger. Any other fun combis I should try?
