fresh fish filets
bottled basil or
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Place your fish filets (or single filet) on a
foil or parchment-lined sheet and pat dry
with paper towel. Spread a spoonful of
pesto (or the sauce of your choice) over
each filet, and if it seems thick, drizzle
with a little olive oil. Spread with the back
of a spoon (or your fingers) to coat the
surface of each filet. Sprinkle with salt
Cook for 10 minutes per inch of thickness,
until the edge flakes with a fork but the
fish is still moist in the middle. Serves as
many as you like.
