If you love basil pesto you will love this invention which uses rocket for a peppery bite. You can also add Parmesan cheese if you like.

Almost any whole fish can be cooked with this method but snapper is particularly good with the Thai flavours. If you can find it, try fresh galangal in place of the ginger, the flavour is unique.

If you grow your own basil this is a great use for the big plants when summer is ending. This pesto can be made in big batches and frozen for months.
