Ingredients: 2 servings

White fish, cod, etc.
350-400 g
Homemade Pesto alla Genovese Recipe ID: 581801 or store-bought sauce
2 tablespoons


1. Make a Genovese sauce using toasted pine nuts. This is for storing, so it doesn't include cheese. If using store-bought sauce, be careful of the salt content.
2. Bake or steam the white fish (I baked in the oven at 200℃ for 10 minutes). I don't use salt or pepper, but adjust to your tastes.
3. Pour 2 tablespoons of the pesto over the fish and heat in the oven for 5-10 minutes at 50℃.
4. Enjoy this with rice, pasta, bread, Polenta, etc. It's also delicious as a salad dressing.
5. Serve with a side of tomato and brussels sprouts salad for color. This delicious suggestion came from a user.
6. Top the sauce with chicken seasoned in salt and pepper. Serve with pasta and vegetables.
7. Another user suggested a saute of mushrooms and green beans with the pesto.
8. Make the pesto in bulk and freeze in a resealable bag for later use.
