Ingredients

  • 2 envelopes pesto sauce mix, divided
  • 4 cod fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted

Directions

Prepare one envelope pesto sauce mix according to package directions; set aside. Sprinkle fillets with remaining pesto mix, patting to help adhere.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add fillets; cook 4-5 minutes on each side or until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with cheese and pine nuts. Serve with pesto sauce. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
