Went down a treat with all of us! Added the chilli flakes as suggested and it was very tasty - but I think would have been fine without it too.

Great recipe - thank you. Made last night to liven up River Cobbler. Thanks to tips left by others, I added a little fresh chilli to the crumb. I love that this is an 'eco' meal in using responsibly sourced fish, leftover bread and requiring little cooking. It's quick and healthy (no butter used in batter etc) - and mine worked out a cheap meal by using river cobbler sold reduced at the end of the supermarket day, homegrown rosemary and chilli given to me by a friend! Served with watercress, as i had some in the fridge, and a couple of tomatoes lightly grilled alongside the fish. This will be a favourite in my home!

Had this for dinner this evening. I added a few chilli flakes to the breadcrumb mixture and it worked a treat! Really simple and very tasty. Served with boiled new potatoes and crunchy extra-fine green beans.

It was easy to make, served it with potatoes and green beans. A little bland and plain. Might try another fish recipe next time!

Hmm.....average - a little too bland for my taste. I had this with new potatoes and salad; I used haddock for the fish. Something was missing.

Tried this recipe with Vietnamese river cobbler which I hadn't tasted before. The result was really good, the topping was very lemony and balanced with the fish perfectly. Served with roasted new potatoes and broccoli.
