baked fish with lemony breadbrumbs and not just pesto being taken out of pan

We love this recipe because it works well with various types of fish such as salmon, cod, or halibut. The crunchy panko adds a nice texture to the smooth and silky fish + pesto.

Ingredients

1 lemon, thinly sliced
¼ cup panko
2 Tbsp olive oil, plus more to serve
1 Tbsp minced parsley, plus more to serve
2 6-ounce portions of halibut or cod
salt and pepper
½ cup not just pesto

Process

1

Preheat the oven to 425 with a rack in the middle position and line the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish with the lemon slices, creating a bed for the fish.

2

Combine the panko, olive oil, and parsley in a small bowl.

3

Place the fish filets directly on top of the lemon slices, and season with salt and pepper. Top each filet with ¼ cup Not Just Pesto followed by the panko mixture, equally dispersing on each filet, to create a crust.

4

Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes (depending on the thickness of your fish) until it flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with a drizzle of oil and parsley.
