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.


Fish fillets (tilapia is shown above)
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.

Pesto Parmesan Panko Fish


Pesto “Fried” Chicken

2 to 2 1/2 pounds chicken pieces (breasts, thighs and drumsticks), skinned, all visible fat removed
3 tablespoons purchased pesto or homemade pesto
1/4 cup cornflake crumbs
Fresh lemon or lime wedges (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Rinse chicken and pat dry. Place breasts and thighs bone side down in a shallow baking pan. Add drumsticks and brush top of chicken with pesto and sprinkle with cornflake crumbs.
Bake, uncovered, 45 to 55 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Serve with lemon or lime wedges if desired.
Cook’s Tip: Skinning chicken, especially drumsticks and wings, can be tricky since they are so slippery. An easy way around this problem is to grasp the skin with a dry paper towel as you pull it away from the meat.
