A gourmet restaurant-quality dinner without any work! I tried this because I saw it in Julie F's 'Best of 2012' cookbook. I used grouper and Flora Foods' artichoke pesto in a jar for a really quick, delicious dinner! It is quite rich so you don't need big portions of fish per person.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place foil on a cookie sheet. Place fish on the foil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Top with pesto, tomatoes and then cheese (in order).
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until fish flakes with fork.
  5. *Note: I don't care for pesto except in this recipe. To prevent wasting the rest of the pesto in the jar, I make one recipe for dinner and freeze the ingredients to have another day. Just place each of the ingredients (except salt & pepper) in its own quart-size freezer bag, then place all in a gallon-size freezer bag along with directions and freeze. When ready to make, just thaw completely and follow the above directions to prepare.
