      Top each fillet with a smooth coating of pesto.
    13. 13
      Bake for approximately 10 minutes, depending on thickness.

      Never made pesto sauce before, thats because I do not have a food processor. I guess I have to get one now because my husband found something new he likes. I like it too.
