Excellent go-to recipe for a quick fish dish. Great with any mild white fish! I always serve fresh lemon along with cooked fish, so that could have enhanced the flavor above and beyond the base recipe. Also, I doubled the ingredients for the pesto (all but the cheese) for 4 servings to make sure there was enough so that each bite of fish had plenty of sauce (and because making a tiny batch of pesto in my large food processor is almost impossible).

Great flavor. I added a little lemon juice over the topping on the fish.

The basil sauce is the standout in this recipe! I agree with other reviews - go easy on the garlic, it really stands out. Other than that it is a very easy, quick, healthy and delicious meal. It will definitely become part of my personal recipe book.

Pretty good and very easy. The garlic really stands out, so go light. I used two very small cloves. If using larger cloves, consider only using one.

Made this dish tonight! It was fabulous! I did heat the sauce up ... and if you are using sea salt I would use a little less then calls for. This recipe is going on regular rotation!
