Instructions
PREPARATION FOR CREAMY PESTO :
  1. In a food processor or blender, place walnuts, garlic, basil, and spinach and blend for 30 seconds.
  2. Add olive oil, milk, and lemon zest and blend. Set aside.
PREPARATION FOR FISH:
  1. Heat ghee or oil in large sauté pan over medium heat and sear halibut fillets 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.
  2. While fish is cooking, in separate small saucepan, warm Creamy Pesto on medium-low heat and reserve until fish is cooked.
  3. Place a fillet on each plate, drizzle with lemon and spread the pesto on top (about 2 tablespoons per dish).
