Grilled fish with pesto sauce

Today I opted for Grilled Fish with pesto sauce as I needed to prune my basil.

Using the airfryer, the fish turned out beautifully, soft and juicy.  Unfortunately it does not have the grilled appearance.


To be fair to the manufacturer, I have been lining the basket with baking paper to catch the drippings and I am not sure whether it is because of that that I don't achieve the desired result. (yes I did leave a gap round the grill basket).


Then again, the lower pot is hard to wash if there are stain because there is this sharp metal component in it.  Haiz....  Guess I need to compromise texture or scrubbing or perhaps the 3rd model will be better designed.


I think if I used the pan to grill the fish, this recipe will turned out very well.  Also the amount of oil as indicated it way too much.  Luckily I didn't follow it to the exact.





What you need:


3 white fish fillets (I used only 2)

1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Pesto Sauce


15g fresh basil (stem removed)

2 cloves garlic
3 tbsp pinenuts
1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
100ml extra virgin olive oil
Salt

Method:


Preheat air fryer to 180 deg.


Pat fish dry and brush fish with oil and season with salt and pepper.


Air fry it for 8 mins.  (I did another round because my fish fillet was thicker).


For the pesto sauce, blend basil leaves, garlic, pinenuts, parmesan cheese and olive oil to found a paste.


Season with salt.


Drizzle pesto sauce onto fish before serve.





Happy Weekend.
