Yield: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves (or ⅓ dried)
  • 1/2 cup spinach leaves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup almond milk or 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and ground pepper combined (optional)
  • 1 lemon zest (reserve juice to serve with cooked fish)
  • 1 teaspoon macadamia nut oil
  • 4 halibut fillets (4 ounces each)

Directions:

  • In a food processor or blender, prepare pesto cream by blending walnuts, garlic, basil and spinach for 30 seconds.
  • Add olive oil and almond cream and blend.
  • Add lemon zest and blend; set aside.
  • Heat macadamia nut oil in large sauté pan over medium heat and sear halibut filets on one side until a golden crust forms and the fish is done on the bottom, 1 to 2 minutes. Gently turn the fish and cover to finish cooking through, about 2 minutes. The fish is ready when it starts to flake.
  • While the fish is cooking, in separate small sauce pan, warm pesto cream on medium-low heat and reserve until fish is cooked.
  • Plate the fish, squeeze lemon juice over, if desired, and drizzle the pesto on top (about 2 tablespoons per dish). Enjoy!
