Liisa’s Summer Recipe

Come to grab some Fresh Fillets – Whitefish or Red Fin Trout at The Fish Shop, lay the fillets onto foil or parchment paper (one layer) and slather the fish with our home-made pesto. Cover the pesto with thin slices of red onions and red peppers and bake or grill the fish @ approximately 400, for 10-12 minutes. Check with a butter knife before removing the fish from heat. Et voilà; Supper is ready!
