1.Preheat oven to 160°C/140°C fan-forced.
2.Blend or process basil, garlic, nuts and juice until combined. With motor operating, gradually add oil in thin, steady stream until pesto thickens slightly.
3.Place fish, skin-side down, on piece of oiled foil large enough to completely enclose fish; coat fish with half of the pesto.
4.Gather corners of foil together above fish; twist to enclose securely. Place parcel on oven tray; roast about 45 minutes or until cooked as desired.
5.Meanwhile, heat extra oil in large frying pan; cook capsicum and onion, stirring, until onion softens.
6.Serve salmon topped with onion mixture, drizzled with remaining pesto.

If the pesto is a little too thick for your liking, thin it down with a little olive oil before drizzling over the salmon.
