Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: Five Minutes
Total Time: 30 Minutes or Less

4 tilapia fillets
Extra virgin olive oil/avocado oil
2 tbsp pesto
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 tsp white sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp chives, minced
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
Mix everything except the fish and oil together, and set aside.
Heat the broiler in your oven with the top rack moved up as close to the burner as possible. Place a sheet pan on the rack so that it, too, heats up.
Brush both sides of the fish with olive/avocado oil. Once oven is heated, place the fish on the hot pan (it should sizzle) and return it to the oven for 5-7 minutes. Flip fish over and put a thin layer of the pesto mixture on the cooked side. Return to the oven for another 5-7 minutes. The fish should be cooked through at this point. If not, add five minutes. But, watch it carefully so the sauce doesnât burn. Serve immediately.
