The pungent flavor of the chives in this recipe is tempered by the mild sea bass, complementing each other perfectly. When developing this recipe, I wanted to offer the option of a pesto sauce recipe to all the home cooks who do not use fresh herbs on Passover. Chives are one of the few herbs that are available greenhouse grown for Passover and can be found in most kosher supermarkets.
If you are short on time, this recipe is spectacular with just the chive pesto. Steps two and three are optional enhancements. The chive pesto and the artichoke lemon cream both have
an enduring versatile appeal that is also delicious as a salad dressing, a savory side dish when tossed with roasted potatoes, or a dip. On Passover, our quest for culinary ingenuity is intensified—hence the square French fries as a garnish.
