Grated lemon rind and juice lend tartness to the pesto that enhances the natural flavors of this simple grilled fish.
4 (6-ounce) halibut or other firm white fish fillets
1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2/3 cup firmly packed basil leaves
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
How to Make It
Place fillets on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle fish evenly with 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cover and grill 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
While fish grills, combine 1/8 teaspoon salt, basil, and remaining 5 ingredients in a blender or food processor. Process until finely minced. Serve grilled fish over pesto.
