April Showalter of Milwaukee, WI writes about her Pesto Halibut, “The mildness of the fish contrasts perfectly with the deep flavor of pesto.” It literally takes 5 minutes to get the fish fillets ready for the oven, so you can start on your choice of side dishes; nearly anything goes well with this fish.
