For this baked basa fillet recipe, I made my own homemade pesto with walnuts, olives and spinach leaves instead of the usual garlic, pine nuts and basil. Cover the left-over pesto and leave it in a fridge. You can also use this pesto in bread wraps or mix with pasta.

Baked Basa Fillet with Walnut and Olive Pesto

  • 7-8 green olives
  • Handful of walnuts
  • Handful of baby spinach leaves
  • 1 long red chilli (if you like it hotter, you may add small red chillies)
  • Olive oil
  • Pepper to taste
  • Basa fillets (you may use any fish fillet)
  • Use mortar and pestle to pound all the ingredients for the pesto: olives, walnuts, red chilli, olive oil, baby spinach leaves and pepper. You can also use a food processor to do this.
Baked Basa Fillet with Walnut and Olive Pesto
  • Apply a layer of pesto on top of your fillets.
  • Put the fillets on greased tray and put inside a moderate oven for about 10 minutes or until the fish is cooked.
