Tilapia with cilantro pesto

This is actually something that Aaron improvised once, to amazing effect.

Tilapia is a very affordable (and usually sustainable) fish. I managed to find some filets for cheap at T&T, so I let Aaron make this simple recipe again. It’s so delicious!

He puts the leaves and stems of cilantro and parsley in the blender with a little salt and pepper, olive oil, lemon, garlic, and chili pepper. Blender it up, paste it on the fish, and steam/pan fry. That’s it! This time we had it with some roasted peppers and potatoes for a very healthy, extremely flavourful, quick dinner. There are still a couple tilapia filets in the freezer, too. Do it!
