Marlin Steaks with Green Beans, Pesto and Roast Tomatoes
Kids usually eat vegetables if they have other flavours such as garlic, salt, soy sauce added to them. Pesto is a good choice for flavouring vegetables.
Ingredients (Serves 4)
4 marlin steaks
400g green beans, topped and tailed
8 roast tomato halves (see recipe on this website)
4 teaspoons pesto (see recipe on this website)
juice of 1 lemon mixed with 1 tablespoon of olive oil
sea salt and pepper
Brush marlin steaks with oil and lemon juice mixture, cook under a hot grill (I prefer a skillet) for 2 minutes. Turn over, brush with oil and lemon juice again and continue cooking, probably another 2 minutes. Be careful not to overcook the fish. As soon as the flesh turns white remove it from the heat.
Microwave or steam the beans, toss with pesto and portion on to 4 dinner plates.
Place a marlin steak next to the beans, on each plate. Season to taste. Serve with roast tomato halves on the side.
