Herby breadcrumbs and a slick of Not Just Pesto make for a so-easy-but-still-feels-fancy dinner.
Lemon Pesto Fish with Herby Breadcrumbs
This recipe works for salmon, halibut, hake…really any kind fish. Just make sure the filets are about the same size so they cook in the same amount of time.
1 lemon, thinly sliced
¼ cup panko
2 Tbsp olive oil, plus more to serve
1 Tbsp minced parsley, plus more to serve
26-ounce portions of halibut or cod
Salt and pepper
½ cup not just pesto
Preheat the oven to 425 with a rack in the middle position and line the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish with the lemon slices, creating a bed for the fish.
- Combine the panko, olive oil, and parsley in a small bowl.
- Place the fish filets directly on top of the lemon slices, and season with salt and pepper. Top each filet with ¼ cup Not Just Pesto followed by the panko mixture, equally dispersing on each filet, to create a crust.
- Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes (depending on the thickness of your fish) until it flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with a drizzle of oil and parsley.
