Pesto Parmesan Panko Fish

Pesto Parmesan Panko Fish

Delicious fish prepared with a pesto-Parmesan topping, sprinkled with panko bread crumbs and baked until the top is crispy  and the fish underneath is tender and flaky.

Ingredients:

Fish fillets (tilapia is shown above)
mayonnaise
pesto
Parmesan cheese
panko bread crumbs
lemon juice

Lightly sprinkle the bottom of your baking dish with lemon juice and lay the fish fillets in the baking dish.

Mix together the next 2 ingredients.  How much depends on how much fish you are cooking.  Per fish fillet, use 1 tablespoon mayonnaise and 1 teaspoon pesto.  Spread about a tablespoon of this sauce on top of each fish fillet.  Lightly sprinkle Parmesan cheese over each fish fillet and then sprinkle Panko bread crumbs on top.

Bake in a preheated 350ºF oven for approximately 15 minutes.  Test the fish to make sure it’s cooked through.  It should flake easily.

Citrus Glazed Ham

Citrus Glazed Ham

Citrus Glazed Ham

This zesty glaze makes a fully cooked spiral sliced ham sweet and sunny.  Use the same glaze as for Citrus Glazed Yams.

1 cup orange juice
2 heaping tablespoons orange marmalade
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine orange juice and next 5 ingredients in a small saucepan, stirring well.  Bring to a boil.  Boil until thickened, about a minute.  Remove from heat.  Stir in vanilla.

Place a fully cooked sliced ham in a baking dish.  Pour the glaze over, fanning out the ham slices to get some glaze between the slices of ham.

Bake in a 350º F oven for about 40 minutes, just until the ham is heated all the way through and the glaze is bubbly and thickened.
