Cuisine: Entree, Sauce
Serves: 2
  • 1 cup shelled pistachio nuts
  • 1 cup packed parsley
  • ¾ cup packed cilantro
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Zest of 1 orange (or peel with vegetable peeler and mince)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 4-ounce mahi mahi filets
  1. Combine nuts and herbs in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Add oil and orange zest and let whirl until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Combine 2 tablespoons of the pesto with either a little more oil or some water until the consistency of ketchup. Cover each piece of fish with the pesto and bake at 350 degrees until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Freeze remaining pesto in an ice cube tray in the freezer (you'll have about 16 more servings of pesto left).
