Sauteed Halibut with Lemon-Pesto Butter

Can't wait to try this recipe. It looks wonderful. It comes from cooking light
3 Tablespoons butter, softened
1 Tablespoon refrigerated pesto
1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon finely chopped shallots
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 (6oz) skinless halibut fillets
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Cooking Spray
1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring until well blended.
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle fillets evenly on both sides with salt and pepper. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add fillets to pan; saute 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Serve fish with the butter mixture. I made my own pesto because I like to use it for various dishes I make.
