Sautéed Cherry Tomatoes


Season the fillets with the salt and pepper. In a large sauté pan, heat the oil over medium heat and sear the fillets 4 to 5 minutes to a side, or until opaque through. Remove them from the pan and brush with the pesto sauce. Serve them garnished with the sautéed tomatoes (recipe below).

For Sautéed Cherry Tomatoes

In a sauté pan, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the garlic and cook for 15 seconds. Add the tomatoes, salt and pesto and cook just until the tomatoes begin to blister. Don't overcook them or you'll have an unexpected marinara sauce!
