Great whitefish entree!


  • 4 whitefish
  • 2 tbs. lemon juice
  • 2 garlic
  • 2 c. cilantro, bunch, fresh, organic
  • 1 tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbs. butter


Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C). Prepare a shallow baking dish with butter. Sprinkle the fish with lemon juice and place in the dish. Mince the garlic in a food processor or blender. Add the cilantro; process until minced. Add the oil, salt, and red pepper flakes; process until well mixed. (Alternatively, mince the garlic and cilantro by hand; stir in the oil, salt, and pepper until well blended.) Spread the pesto evenly over the fish. Bake 10 minutes, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Serve hot.
