How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 400°. Set the salmon fillets on a rimmed
baking sheet and rub all over with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil; 
season with salt and pepper. Roast for 10 minutes, until the salmon 
is just cooked through.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, in a blender, puree the basil with the parsley, anchovies, lemon zest and juice, capers, garlic and the remaining 1/2 cup of olive oil until smooth; season with salt. Serve the basil sauce with the salmon.

Make Ahead

The basil sauce can be refrigerated overnight.
