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!

...PS. That's rice shaped in a mould to shape it like a small ramekin, not mouldy rice!

I LOVE this recipe as it's so tasty, so easy and so convenient. I often make it when my hsuband is working late and prep it all at the same time and then just leave the try of prepped fish and tomatoes in the fridge until he's back, then cook and serve with rocket. I found using breadcrumbs from a sesame bagel worked the best for the topping too and it looks very special with cherry tomatoes on the vine for a dinner party served with rocket and moulded rice or dauphinoise potatoes.

I used fresh thyme instead of parsley and actually mixed the coating mixture all together - really tasty and so easy, will definitely make again.

Used the suggested curry mayo addition and was lovely.

Made it just as per the recipe and loved it. Will definitely make this again and maybe try Sparkyman's suggestion with the sundried tomatoes.

Very easy to make I used smoked haddock and it was very tasty, will certainly make it again.

Very quick, simple dish....I had no cherry tomatoes so replaced them with some roughly chopped (Biggish Pieces) of sundried tomatoes (in Olive Oil) - they really made the dish !
