Oven baked fish with a pesto crust
makes 4 portions
- 4 hake fillets, about 200g each or any firm white fish, SASSI green listed
- 4 tsp Thai pesto, heaped or any of the 6 Pesto Princess flavours
- Pecorino cheese, 50g grated optional
Preheat oven to 220 degrees Celsius.
Using a little olive oil, grease a baking tray and arrange your fish fillets on it.
Spread a generous teaspoon of pesto onto each fillet.
Divide the grated cheese between the 4 fish fillets, sprinkling it over the pesto
Bake for 10-12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.
Hint: when you think the fish still has a minute to go, it’s ready… it tends to continue cooking for a bit once removed from the oven.
The cheese should be golden, and your fish, succulent.
Serve with thin strips of raw baby marrow which have been marinated for 10 minutes in olive oil, lemon juice, and a little salt.
