Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Scatter the bread over a baking tray, toss with 1 tbsp oil, then bake for 10 mins until crisp and golden. Meanwhile, mix together the tomatoes, cucumber, pepper and onion with another 2 tbsp oil, the sherry vinegar and crushed garlic, then season well.
  2. Heat a large, non-stick frying pan. Add the oil and, once hot, fry the fish for 4 mins until golden. Flip the fillets over and continue cooking for another 1-2 mins until the fish is cooked through.
  3. Quickly mix the croutons with the rest of the salad, divide between four plates and serve the fish alongside.

I made this dish with cod fillets as I had them in the freezer, it was fine but I will try pollack next time. Also used my home-made vinaigrette on the salad, slightly zingier than that described. It made a lovely, not too heavy, supper

We just had this for dinner and it was absolutely delicious although we'll be using slightly less garlic next time! We used bread that my partner had baked yesterday for delicious, chunky croutons! A very quick, simple and healthy recipe and also incredibly cheap since pollack is what Sainsbury's use in their "basics frozen white fish"! A smaller version of this would also make a lovely starter.

This turned out just like the picture - which makes a change!
A perfect summer dish washed down with a nice glass of muscadet. Pollack was readily available with out having to go out of town and reasonably priced. Will definatley make it again.

This was a really tasty, crunchy salad that would go well with any white fish. Used ciabatta for the croutons, too, which made lovely big crunchy ones. Didn't have any sherry vinegar, so used red wine vinegar instead - it seemed to work fine!

We really enjoyed the pollack too, and will be buying it more often as a replacement for cod/haddock now!

The fish was great, but the salad disappointing. Really boring - fresh taste but not enjoyable to eat.

This is a superb, quick, simple and healthy recipe. Pollack is similar to Cod but slightly firmer. I used Ciabatta bread.
