Sprinkle the fish with the lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Cut each sheet of phyllo pastry into two pieces.
Spray each with non-stick spray and stack the two pieces on top of each other.
Place the fish on top and spread with 5 ml tomato pesto if desired.
Wrap the fish in pastry, bushing the edges of the pastry with the whisked egg white to secure.
Deep-fry the parcels in heated oil until the phyllo pastry is golden brown and the fish is done ? about 15 minutes. (Do not overheat the oil otherwise the pastry will brown before the fish is done.)
Serve with a salsa made with finely chopped fresh tomato and onion and seasoned with a little sugar and red wine vinegar.
