This recipe was super quick to make and super tasty, I didn't have green pesto only red so used that & added some chopped basil and 2 crushed garlic cloves to the tomato mixture. Also served with courgette as well as the broccoli and green beans & a portion of cous cous. At the point of cooking the veg and cous cous I added some halved cherry tomatoes to the dish in the oven and put a couple of grinds of salt and pepper on them so they were nice and roasted, but still held their shape a bit.

I used trout fillets as they were on offer. Served with broccoli and mash cooked separately. Cooked very quickly. An ideal mid week meal.

This was gorgeous! I did not bake the tomato and pesto for 10 minutes prior to adding the fish, due to time constraints, but it still turned out delightful! So easy to make this is an easy week-night dinner that looks restaurant-grade. Will definitely be cooking this again!
