3 lean meat
1 cup loosely packed, fresh basil
2 tablespoon pine nuts
2 tablespoon sliced black olives
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
2 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
2 teaspoon olive oil
2 medium garlic cloves (minced)
4 salmon fillets (about 4 ounces each), rinsed, patted dry
Preheat the broiler. Lightly spray the broiler pan with cooking spray.
In a food processor or blender, process the remaining ingredients except the fish for 15 to 20 seconds, or until slightly chunky.
Place the fish on the broiler pan. Using a pastry brush or spoon, spread the basil mixture over both sides of the fish.
Broil the fish about 4 inches from the heat for 5 to 6 minutes. Turn over the fish. Broil for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the desired doneness.
