Pesto Fish

Published by torlott

One for the summer



  • Fish fillets...either cod, salmon, tuna...about the size of your hand
  • jar of green or red pesto.
  • couple of slices of bread, made into bread crumbs
  • strong grated cheese - about 125g (or whatever you've got)


place fish pieces on a will oiled baking tray

mix together half the jar of pesto (or all of it, depending on how many pieces of fish you are using - one jar will do approx 4 pieces) with the breadcrumbs and the grated cheese

spread generaously on top of each fish piece

bake in the oven for about 20 mins, at 180...or until golden brown.

serve with salad, crusty bread or new pots

    This is delicious, oh my goodness. Looking forward to making it again!

    This is really nice, but it can be made without the breadcrumbs as well, to make it sightly less heavy and more of a summer meal.
    Even so, it is still some of the best fish I have had in a long time. Thanks
