Let's Make It
Heat grill to medium heat.
Brush both sides of fish with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill, skin sides down, 10 min. or until fish flakes easily with fork.
Meanwhile, cook and stir cream cheese and milk in small saucepan on medium heat 2 to 3 min. or until cream cheese is completely melted and sauce is well blended. Stir in pesto.
Serve fish topped with sauce and parsley.
Round out the meal with hot cooked rice and steamed vegetables. For added flavor, squeeze fresh lemon juice over fish just before serving.
When salmon is done, it will appear opaque and flake easily with a fork.
Check salmon fillets for bones before cooking by running fingers over surface. Small bumps are usually a sign of bones - use tweezers to remove them.
