Grilled Pesto Fish
I bought some frozen River Cobbler Fish fillets from a membership shopping store. I had good experience with this kind of fish. I know it is soft, flaky and melt-in-the mouth. The children love this fish.
For this dish, I simply added pesto. I have to confess this is not my original idea. I saw some ready-to-cook milkfish in the groceries, marinated in pesto sauce. I simply 'copied' the idea.
This is a very easy dish to make. Using only 2 main ingredients. Perfect for those days when you want good food in a flash.
4 pcs fish fillets
4 T pesto sauce ( I used bottled ones bought from the grocery)
salt and pepper
1 stalk green onions, chopped, for garnish
1. Cover the fish fillets with pesto sauce. Add as much as you prefer. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let stand for 20 to 30 minutes.
2. Heat up the grill. ( I use a stove top grill which is very convenient for me.) Brush some olive oil on the grill to prevent fish from sticking.
3. Grill the fish until it changes color and is thoroughly cooked.
4. Dish up. Sprinkle with green onions for garnish.
So easy to do, so nutritious. Perfect for South Beach dieters. With dishes like this, it is quite easy to switch to low-carb diets.
