Cooking fish hardly takes any time at all! This easy dinner recipe is flavorful, healthy and delicious.


  • 1 pound mild white fish fillets (such as cod, tilapia, flounder, or sole)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • ½ cup sliced raw almonds
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 trimmed green onions, white and green parts
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil + extra for greasing the baking dish
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Grease a large rectangular baking dish with a light coating of olive oil. Evenly distribute the fish fillets in the bottom of the baking dish, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and set aside.
  3. In a food processor, combine the parsley, almonds, Parmesan, green onions, 3 tablespoons olive oil, and lemon juice. Pulse until it forms a thick pesto.
  4. Spread the pesto in an even layer on top of the fish. Cook until done (white and flaky), about 15 – 20 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish.

We recommend organic ingredients when feasible.
