Yield
6 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup orzo, 1 fillet and 1/4 cup pesto)

Plum tomatoes work best in this recipe; juicier tomatoes would thin the pesto. No need to seed or peel them. You can make the pesto ahead and keep it chilled. Stir in the tomatoes just before serving.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare pesto, combine first 4 ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth. Add cheese and red pepper; process until blended. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Add tomato, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and black pepper, stirring gently to combine.

Step 2

Preheat broiler.

Step 3

To prepare fish, sprinkle fish with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Arrange fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray, and broil 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Place 1/2 cup orzo on each of 6 plates, and top each serving with 1 fillet and 1/4 cup pesto.
