I was feeling lazy so I just bought pre-made basil pesto, and added some chopped tomato to it. I also used tilapia instead of haddock, since that's what we had in the freezer. It tasted absolutely wonderful! My husband and I loved it so much, best fish receipe I've ever used. Unfortunately, there was so much grease (the oil from the pesto, the greased baking dish, AND brushed olive oil on top), that it made me feel a bit sick afterwards. I will try this again but will definitely cut back on all the oil, which I think is unnecessary. 5 stars for taste, minus 1 for too much grease/oil.
