very nice except it needed to be either done on a medium grill or a bit further away from the heat as the bread crumbs began to burn after just a minute. Lovely flavour , very quick and simple and definately one to do again.

I am not great with fish but this was a nice recipe to follow made one change and added a bit of dry chilli to the mix to give it a small kick and it turned out ok so think i'm going to have a go at a few of the others on here, helps that on diet and need to eat more fish so this helps.

Did this on cod for a Friday night fish supper. A little bit too lemony for me but the rest of the family enjoyed it. Will definitely make again reducing the amount of zest and juice

A stunning recipe that my husband loved despite refusing most fish other than from the 'chippie.' Thrilled to find a healthy fish meal for us.
