Default Pesto Snappah!

If you are growing an herb garden right now then your Basil bushes are probably growing like crazy. Mine are starting to seed which I think means that they are about to wilt, but I don't know that for sure. In any case the stems are all full and there are a lot of little growths coming up in the soil too. So I decided to make some pesto with the Basil and Rosemary.
If you don't know how to make pesto I will include my recipe too. If you do know, or have some on hand then you can jump right into this.

Take some snappah fillets and place them into a pre-oiled casserole dish, cut a couple slices into the fillet, place 1/4 inch slices of stick butter on to fish kind of stuffing the slice with a slab of butter, maybe 3 or 4 slabs per fillet. Then grind some sea salt over the fish then grind some pepper over the fish. Place in oven under broiler on high for 10-15 minutes. Then take out an apply the pesto generously and bake at 350 for another 15-20 mins. Serve hot.


Pesto, I am sure there are a lot of recipes on the net but mine is pretty simple. Take a bunch of basil, couple tea spoons of rosemary, a small handfull of pine nuts, 2 table spoons of garlic, 2 table spoons of parmesan, sea salt and pepper to taste, put in a small food processor and chop it all up, add EVOO until it is pasty then a little more. Let sit 30 minutes and serve.

When your basil plants start to bud, pinch off the buds so they can't flower and seed. They'll continue growing for months and months.
