2. Preheat broiler; line broiler pan with foil and spray with vegetable spray.
3. Place fillets skin side down on broiler. Brush surface of fish with remaining oil. Broil until just barely cooked through; check after 5 to 8 minutes. Tent the fish with foil to finish cooking. Spread pesto evenly over fillets (you may have some left over).
