  • Summary

    We swooned over deputy food editor Janet McCracken's pumpkin seed and cilantro pesto when she made it in the BA Test Kitchen. Now we use it on rice, pasta, roasted vegetables, and chicken, too.

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 teaspoons plus 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    • 1/2 cup shelled pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
    • 1/2 cup (firmly packed) cilantro leaves and stems
    • 1/2 teaspoon cracked coriander seeds
    • 1/2 garlic clove, coarsely chopped
    • 1 tablespoon (or more) fresh lime juice
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 4 6-ounce salmon fillets (preferably wild)
    • 1 lime, cut into 4 wedges
