Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Lightly oil a large baking tray, then lay the haddock and tomatoes alongside each other. In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the garlic paste or crushed garlic, then spread evenly over the fish.
  2. In a separate bowl, toss together the breadcrumbs, lemon zest, juice and parsley, and season to taste. Top the fish with the breadcrumb mixture. Drizzle olive oil over the fish and tomatoes, and bake for 15 mins or until the fish flakes slightly when pressed and the crust is golden and crunchy.

ReallY nice recipe, even my fish hating husband liked it. I used Mesa sunrise cereal flakes instead of breadcrumbs and it worked.

This was such a great dish... I added some grated parmesan to the breadcrumb / lemon / parsley mix... haven't had this dish before so don't know whether it would make a difference but it was really nice anyway! Served with home made chips and a green salad.

Delicious. Am a confirmed fish and batter man, but cooked this dish the first time today for me and my wife - got plenty of Brownie points. No more chippie batter, it's not good for me!

Loved this! So easy to prepare. The tomatoes are great with it, they add a lovely sweetness. Will definitely make again.

This is a lovely recipe, works well as it is but is also adaptable. We always use less mayo (as one of us hates it) and it turns out great. This makes a nice family tea or you could "tart it up "for a dinner party. Brilliant!

I Changed The White Breadcrumbs For Brown Breadcrumbs, And It Still Tasted Amazing, But With Added Health Benefits

I just used the crust recipe with salmon fillets, omitting the tomatoes and it was very good indeed. Have made it several times now with different fish and with brown bread crumbs.

Hmmm very tasty, I made this with smoked haddock and will be making it again. I've previously used dijon mustard on fish to hold on a herb crust but it was nice and light with the mayo, even my 2 year old enjoyed it. I served it with sweet potato wedges and green beans. I think filling, tasty and healthy.

This is now a firm family favourite of ours and great for dinner parties as you can prep it before guests come and then just pop it in the oven when you're ready. I find it goes best with brown basmati rice, boiled in veg stock and a green salad. We sometimes add peas to the rice at the end of cooking or steam some tender stem broccoli. Works well with a lemon tart and cream for dessert.

I tried this with gluten free breadcrumbs and without lemon and parsley (only because I didn't have them) and it was still delicious! So easy to do and went really well with bubble and squeak.

made this for a none loving fish guy!....and guess what he loved it. Yip so much so he wants it again. Easy to make looked fab and tasted amazing. Made it with brown bread as that's all I use. Tasted just as good.

Five stars for this one! We had it for dinner last night and it was gorgeous. I told my 10yr old son that he wasn't allowed to scrape the crust off of his fish (because I just knew he would have done, otherwise! lol) and after looking at it like as though it had come down from Mars, he tentatively tried it - and decreed it "actually, very tasty!" - and ate the lot. *grin* Now there's testament to how good it is! I served it with new potatoes, green beans and carrots, but it would have been just as nice with a green salad and new potatoes. I think, next time, I will reduce the amount of mayo used - and the curry version would be nice to try, too!
