Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • ¼ cup parsley leaves
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons tarragon leaves
  • ⅓ - ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ cup pecorino romano cheese, grated
  • 4 (8 ounce) coho fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

For the Pesto

In a food processor (or mortar and pestle), finely grind garlic and pine nuts. Add herbs and pulse until finely chopped. Slowly add ⅓ - ½ cup olive oil until a smooth paste forms. Add lemon juice and fold in grated cheese. Stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

In a large, preferably non-stick, skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Season coho fillets with salt and pepper and place in pan flesh-side down. Cook for 3-4 minutes and turn to cook skin-side for an additional 3-4 minutes until just begins to flake.

For the Plating

Drizzle pesto over coho fillets and serve.
