Roasted Tilapia with Herb Pesto

6 Tilapia fillets
3 Tablespoons flat leaf parsley
3 Tablespoons fresh rosemary
3 Tablespoons fresh dill
3 Tablespoons fresh ginger
4 cloves garlic
¼ a lemon
¼ to ½ cup good olive oil

Rice or Harvest Grains already cooked

Preheat oven 450

Lightly oil pan and put fillets in pan. Take the herbs, ginger, garlic, lemon and olive oil and place in blender or food processor. Pulse until all of its finely ground. Coat the fish with the herb pesto, salt and pepper, reserving half of the pesto. Place the pan in oven and roast until fish flakes ( I usually wait until I can smell the fish cooking to check. Usually they are done by this time). Take out and let rest on stove.

Stir the remaining pesto into the rice or Harvest grains while the rice/grains are still pretty warm.

Place fish on a platter and enjoy.

I like to serve a white Lambrusco with this.
