  • Spread the butter onto a sheet of plastic wrap. Wrap the plastic around the butter, rolling it back and forth to shape it into a cylinder. Twist the ends tightly. Chill until ready to use.  
  • Brush fish fillets with melted butter and season with salt and pepper. Dust with Panko, pressing them into the fillets to adhere. Heat a large saute pan over medium-high; add oil and saute fish for 3 minutes. Carefully turn each fillet, add tomatoes to pan, and transfer to the oven to roast for 10 minutes. Serve each fillet with a tablespoon of Pesto Butter and Tomatoes.
