Walnut Basil Pesto Halibut
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 2 slices halibut (little less than 1 lb)
  • ½ cup shelled walnuts
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves, rinsed, loosely packed
  • Pinch of coarse sea salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven 375
  2. Salt and pepper the halibut.
  3. Place the walnuts and Basil in a food processor with metal blade and pulse for just a few seconds (you still want some chopped walnuts left, not a paste)
  4. Place the halibut skin-side down on a rack on top of a baking sheet in preheated oven and cover with the walnut basil mixture.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. When ready to serve, use a spatula to lift the halibut off the rack (the skin will peel off and stay behind on the rack--perfect!)
