Pesto Salmon with Creamy Garlic Sauce

2 tbsp basil pesto
1 pound salmon fillet
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 1/3 C milk
1/3 C shredded parmesan cheese
1 tsp minced garlic

Preheat oven to 350. Rub salmon fillet with pesto and place in preheated oven for 10-15minutes or until flaky. While the salmon cooks, melt butter in a small saucepan.Once the butter is melted slowly add the flour sirring constantly. Slowly add milk, again stirring constantly to prevent lumps. Continue sirring until sauce begins to boil. Turn down sauce to a low simmer for five minutes. Add parmesan cheese and garlic and stir until smooth. Drizzle sauce over salmon fillet.
