Method

  1. Heat the grill to medium. Place the fish fillets, skin-side up, on a baking tray, then grill for 4 mins. Meanwhile, place the rosemary, bread, lemon zest and some seasoning in a food processor, then blitz to make fine crumbs.
  2. Turn the fish over, then press a quarter of the crumbs over the top of each fillet. Drizzle with olive oil, then grill for 4 mins until the crust is golden and the fish is cooked through and just flaking. Serve with buttered new potatoes and lemon wedges for squeezing over.

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.
