Place a handful of green beans in the middle of the foil. Lay a salmon fillet, skin side down, across the beans and spoon over a good Tbl of pesto. Drizzle with olive oil, squeeze over the juice from one of the lemon halves, and season with salt and pepper. Pull the foil edges together and scrunch them up to seal the parcel.
- Repeat these steps for the second parcel and place both on a baking sheet.
- Cook in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it stand for a minute before carefulkly unwrapping and checking that the salmon is cooked through.
