Pesto Fish with Pine Nuts

Light and delicate with an added richness, this homemade pesto and pine nut fish will make even the pickiest eaters melt. 

Ingredients

Homemade Pesto Sauce:

2 cups basil

¼ cup toasted pine nuts toasted

4-5 TBS olive oil

1 tsp lemon juice

1 ½ TBS minced garlic

½ cup parmesan cheese

½ tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

4 cod fillets (6 ounces each)

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan or Romano cheese

1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted

Directions

Prepare pesto sauce mix according to directions; set aside. Coat fillets with ½  pesto mix. 

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add fillets; cook until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 4-5 minutes on each side. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with additional pesto and pine nuts. 

Editor’s Note

To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
