baked fish with pine nuts and basil

so very tasty!  the original recipe (on yummily) called for pesto and since i didn't have any, this is what i came up with.

  • 2 fillets (white fish, about 6 oz. each, i used pollock but you could use halibut, cod, tilapia, grouper, or any mild white fish)
  • 3 T finely chopped pine nuts
  • 2 T parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 t minced garlic
  • 2 T coarsely chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 t olive oil
  • 1 1/2 T light mayo

mix up sauce and spread atop fish.  bake @ 450 6-10 min, depending on thickness of fish.  (my general rule is it takes about 10 min for a 1 inch thick fillet.)
