Works well with salmon fillets too

Lynne's Review | Rating

This will be a firm favourite in our family. We are all huge fish eaters and in particular just love salmon. With the addition of the basil pesto I know this will be a very big firm favourite.

Did this with our remaining snapper fillets from our last catch, I added a sprinkle of Parmesan to go with it. This pesto is a fantastic way to jazz up the snapper, and look forward to using it on our fresh catches!

I have been making this for awhile and it’s my favourite way to have fish now. . Adding a small tsp of mayonnaise to the pesto makes it easier to spread and the breadcrumbs crunch up nicely

Wow these are just the most gorgeous Fish fillets we have ever eaten. Snapper is always a firm favourite anyway but with the addition of the basil pesto it takes them to a whole new level. Love, love, love them and that goes for the fussy eaters in the house as well. A big thumbs up from us all.

Fearful that the pesto may take over the snapper

Tracey's Review | Rating

Sounds lovely, easy to prepare and tasty.
I'm the only one in my house that would eat it unfortunately.
I would eat it on my own!

Sophie's Review | Rating

I made this recipe using our favourite choice of fresh Snapper fillets. It was a real hit in our household...very nutritious with the delicious blend of Basil Pesto, as well as crispy cooked in the golden breadcrumbs. Perfect with the garden fresh salad and wedges we served it with. Happy to make it often and eat it with different sides...:)
