Baked White Fish with Garlic Pesto

If you’re trying to add more lean protein to your family dinners, this recipe is it!

The combination of fresh lemon juice, garlic, pesto or capers makes this tasty low-carb dinner one that your family will be hooked on. It’s simple, delicious and great for busy weeknights. Plus, the foil makes cleanup a cinch. Cod works well for this recipe, but you can use any white fish and it will turn out wonderful.

Some ways to “reinvent” your leftover fish:

  • Tacos
  • In a wrap with leafy greens, grill on both sides or heat in the toaster oven and serve
  • Cold on a bed of greens topped with sautéed veggies

    My fresh haddock turned to mush even after cooking it 45 minutes and opening the foil. Will not try again.

      Hi Helen! We are so sorry to hear that your haddock didn’t turn out the way you had hoped for. Depending on the type and the thickness of the white fish, the cook time should be right around 20 minutes. If cooked too long, your fish can become mushy. We appreciate your feedback and hope it’ll help others when making the dish.
