Oregano-Basil Pesto Cod

I love Pesto! I love making it myself. It is so useful and easy, just mix, spread, and go! Pesto is so versatile, you can use it on breads, on pasta and meats. I especially love it on fish. Has a mild, sophisticated flavor. Serves 4.

1 pound boneless cod fillets
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup oregano
1/3 basil
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated

Mix together the olive oil, oregano, basil and parmesan cheese. If using fresh herbs, make sure to chop them up  finely. It would be best to let the pesto sit in your fridge for about a day or two so the flavors could meld together better. Store in a jar with a tight lid.

Now just spread the desired amount on your fish! make sure not to dip the spoon or brush back into the jar, or the pesto would be contaminated. Use a separate spoon to scoop the pesto you need out.

I like to line a cookie sheet with some foil, then spray it with nonstick spray. Makes cleanup a lot easier! Lay your fish on it, and pop into a preheated 400F oven. Bake for about 20 minutes.

Fish is done if it flakes when you poke it with a fork, and no more visible transparent parts.

Eat up! About 5 points per serving! SO healthy and SO good!
