Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Busy Day Entrees Fish & Seafood

Amount Measure Ingredient, Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 tbsp olive paste, or olive pesto
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
4 red snapper of flounder fillets, about 2 lb
1/2 cup Newman's Own Bombolina Sauce, or your favorite
4 sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil), cut in thin strips
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp grated lemon zest
1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
fresh basil leaves, shredded for garnish
grated lemon zest, for garnish

Combine olive paste and mustard in a small bowl.

Preheat oven to 500F. Coat a baking sheet with oil.

Fold ends of each fillet under to form a square, then spread some of olive paste mixture on top. Arrange squares on prepared baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until fish separates easily when touched with a fork.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat sauce with tomatoes, lemon juice and zest over medium heat until hot. When fillets are done, transfer to plates and spoon some of hot sauce on top. Garnish with almonds, basil and lemon zest. Serve at once.

Book notes: Up ante here by stirring a little pesto into basmati rice to serve with these easy-to-make, quick-cooking fillets.
