Fish with Parsley Pesto

- Posted in BeFIT Approved Recipes


1 bunch flat-leaf parsley, leaves only, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 lemon, zested and juiced
2 tablespoons whole-wheat or panko bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

16 ounces white-fleshed fish fillet, 2 fillets approx. 6-8 ounces each


Place the parsley in a small food processor and pulse 6-8 times. Add the remaining ingredients and process until a thick sauce forms. (Sauce will keep in a sealed container for up to one week.)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place a cast iron skillet over high heat. Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Lightly spritz the fish on both sides with non-stick cooking spray. Once the skillet is hot, add the fish to the pan. Cook for 2-3 mintues per side. Top each portion of fish with 1/4 cup of pesto. Transfer the pan to the oven for 5 minutes to warm the sauce. Remember that the pan’s handle will get hot in the oven!
