Ingredients

2 tilapia fillets 360 g
3 sun-dried tomatoes (oil packed), finely chopped 1 1/2 tbsp
1/2 shallots, finely chopped 20 g
2 tbsp pesto sauce 30 mL
4 tsp mayonnaise 20 mL
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL

Before you start

Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC/375ºF.
  2. Finely chop the sun-dried tomatoes and the shallot. Transfer to a small bowl then add the mayonnaise and pesto. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Since each fish fillet is uneven in thickness, here is the trick to ensure uniform cooking: cut each fillet into 2 pieces lengthwise, then put each piece separately on a lightly-oiled baking sheet and brush them lightly with oil. Cover with the sauce. Do not add salt – the sauce is already fairly salty.
  4. Place in the lower third of the oven and cook for about 10 min (5-6 min per cm of thickness) until the top(s) have changed colour. Since the cooking time depends on the thickness of the fillets and the actual temperature of your oven, it is important to check with a fork to see if they are cooked through. The thinner pieces will be done before the thicker ones: pull them out when ready, then cover and keep warm while waiting for the remaining ones to be done.
  5. Serve on the warmed plates.

Subbed some parsley/garlic/olive oil instead of the pesto and straight olive oil. It made them a little much oily, but still very tasty!
