An easy and tasty weekday meal but not something I would serve to company. I added pine nuts but even with that the pesto was just ok. Sadly, pesto that is both healthy and delicious remains out of reach. But the lemon did bring out the flavor of the halibut and I did enjoy the meal. I'll probably make it again but I'll be tempted to make it with a more traditional pesto recipe.

Delicious! Made this along with the suggested Grilled Zucchini. Easy and very flavorful. Would definitely make this for guests. Only alteration I made was adding about 1 tablespoon of water to the pesto, to thin it out a bit.

Was very easy to make and the pesto works well with the Halibut. I added toasted Pine nuts to the pesto sauce.

I've made this recipe with both Halibut and Cod and the cod proved to be better, but this recipe all together is amazing! The quick lemon pesto is so bright and delicious! I love this recipe!

What a great dish! I made the pesto first and then the fish which was super quick. I did squeeze lemon on fish. I added a tsp of oil to pan to do top side of halibut which gave it a nice crispy edge. My husband and teenage daughter were all in agreement that this was a tasty dish and I would serve this to company.

Quick and easy recipe. If you like garlic, you will love the pesto. However, if you are not a fan, this pesto stays with you long after you have finished dinner.
