  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and put the fish fillets in a roasting tin. Combine the chopped chilli, mango, cumin, ginger, mint, mango chutney and lime juice. Spoon a quarter of the relish on top of each fillet and pat it down into an even layer with your fingers.
  2. Put the bread in a food processor with the garam masala and turmeric and whizz to fine crumbs. Add the olive oil and give the processor one final pulse to mix everything together.
  3. Spoon the crumbs over the relish-topped fillets. Cover the tin with foil and bake for 10 mins. Remove the foil and continue cooking for another 5 mins until the fish flakes easily and the crumbs have crisped on top. Serve with a green salad – see recipe, below.

The first few times I made this recipe it was fantastic and full of flavour, but the last time (about 2 weeks ago) it was a bit bland. I think the problem was that I used a less ripe mango and the mango chutney wasn't the best quality, as well as using pre-prepared breadcrumbs. I have made this recipe several times, but I'd make sure I didn't make the mistakes I made the last time before trying it again. I recommend Spanish potatoes to go along with this dish- the recipe is on this website.

Agree with KatyCooks - it was bizarrely bland. Nevertheless it was perfectly edible, and nicer than a bit of plain fish.
Served with potato wedges and green salad.

I had very high expectations for this and followed the recipe exactly, expecting zingy, spicy, fresh flavours. Sadly, the end result was curiously bland, despite the range of ingredients. I'm sure it was super-healthy, but I won't be making it again. (I made the Indian Green Salad as well - also not very interesting.)
