My kids have nut allergies to all nuts. How can I make the pesto without them?
Hi Kristy, you can definitely try omitting them completely, as traditional pistou is generally made with olive oil, basil and garlic only: while cheese may be added. – Nicole
I made a light version of the pesto by substituting plain non-fat Greek yogurt in place of the oil and it came almost as good as oil-based pesto. Thanks for a fantastic idea.
Glad to hear that! Thanks for sharing. – Nicole
So I definitely modified the pesto with ingredients I had on hand: basil instead of parsley, pine nuts instead of almonds. THIS WAS AMAZING! I LOVE PESTO but have never baked it with the fish/meat and have never tried green onions in the mix, a delicious and light meal. Thank you!
Great recipe! I made tilapia and cod and liked the cod better. The pesto was delicious and the recipe made a large amount to really smother on the fish!
I made this on Thursday, and today it is Saturday and I am making it again. I like the recipe that much! It is light, flavorful, fresh, and the parsley is available year round and less costly than basil. I love olive oil, but I like that this recipe doesn’t overdo it in that department so the parsley and nut flavors really take centre stage. I used flaked almonds as they were the only nuts I had available and it was delish. I had some pesto leftover and used it the next day on pasta. Thank you!
Would salmon work? That’s all I have in the freezer
Hi Sonya. It would work just fine. ;)

Delicious, The pictures look great and the recipe sounds good. i love the level of sweetness, definitely a keeper. thanks as always :)
Hey Lisa, looks so delicious! thanks you for sharing the recipe with us, sounds so easy!
Made this last night with cod. Used pecans since I had them in fridge. Came out spectacular. My husband and I both loved. I cooked it at a slightly lower temp for a bit longer and it came out perfect…
For the longest time, I thought you could only make pesto out of the traditional ingredients– basil, pinenuts, etc. But, then I learned that you can make a pesto out of nearly any green and nut combination. I make a kale walnut pesto that’s delish. Parsley is always nice with white fish, so I bet this recipe is great. Love the quick meal ideas!
Thank you! I’m trying this tonight!!
Hi, any suggestions as a substitute for almonds? My husband is allergic. Pine nuts?
Yes, try pine nuts or pecans!
