Bob's Pesto Crusted, Parmesan Coated Salmon

Ingredients

1 6 ounce salmon fillet  
1 clove of garlic (finely chopped)
2 tbsp basil pesto
Parmesan cheese  
Olive oil 

Instructions

Lightly oil frying pan, heat oil until very hot. Add garlic pieces (they should brown up almost immediately)  
 
Place salmon fillet face down and brown for 2-3 minutes (cover to avoid too much splatter and also to help begin cooking)  
 
Lower heat and flip fillet with browned fillet facing up. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes (depends upon fillet thickness). Remover cover and spread pesto onto the top of the fillet. Cover the pan again to let the pesto and salmon fillet meld (about 1-2 minutes)  
 
Remove the salmon from the pan, and sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top of the Pesto  
 
Serve on a bed of wilted chopped spinach
