How to make Costco's Basil pesto butter salmon at home?

Hi All,

This is my first post, so I hope this is the appropriate board.

We love a pre-made dish from costco - just a large fillet of salmon with a pesto butter molded into 3 little balls (about 1.5 inch diameter) that you take home and pop in the oven. I've long wondered how to make it because we prefer wild caught salmon and i think the pre-made dish is probably farmed.

Today I couldn't resist buying 2 large packages of copper river salmon for guests coming tomorrow evening and a jar of their pesto and some organic butter. I have googled this but haven't been certain which recipe I should try. Does anyone do on their own already or have any ideas? Would love any leads you might provide as to whether other ingredients are involved or ratios of the ingredients I have.

Thanks so much!
