White sea bass with basil pesto
A friend of mine is a fisherman and is kind enough to occasionally give me delicious fresh fish that he catches off the coast of California. This week I was lucky to receive some white sea bass fillets. YUM!
I sauteed the fillets in a pan with olive oil. Meanwhile I made some pesto with basil, lemon juice, olive oil, a few random nuts and a clove of garlic in my mini blender thingie. And in the oven, I broiled sliced up zucchini.
When the fish and veggies were done I topped them with pesto and served it all up on a bed of lettuce and sliced tomato. Sorry I am so boring - I just keep eating white fish!! But it is a great summer meal.
Squeeze a bit of lemon on top and a scattering of chili flakes and dinner is served! Wowee. It tasted great after a day of fasting and a good workout.
