Pesto Almond Cod


  • 4 servings of cod filets

Pesto Almond Crust:

  • ½ cup toasted almonds

  • Juice of ½ lemon

  • Zest of a lemon

  • ¾ cups fresh basil

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Place all the ingredients for the pesto almond crust in a high powered food processor or blender and pulse until the mixture forms a chunky pesto and the almonds have been chopped into smaller pieces. If the mixture is too thick, add more olive oil.

  3. On a parchment lined baking sheet, place the cod filets.

  4. Spoon the crust mixture over the top of the fish to form a crust, and press it down gently.

  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the fish flakes with a fork.

  6. Serve with lemon wedges.
