  1. Toss the vegetables with the garlic, herbs, olives and oil. Season and tip onto a tray lined with baking parchment. Open-freeze the veg until solid, then transfer to a large freezer bag and put in the freezer.
  2. Whizz the breadcrumbs until fine, then toast for a few secs in a dry frying pan, shaking to prevent them burning. Tip into a bowl and mix with the lemon zest, pepper and a large pinch of salt. Tip into a small freezer bag and pop in the freezer. Both the vegetables and crumbs can be frozen for up to 3 months.
  3. To cook from frozen, heat oven to 200C/220C fan/gas 7. Tip the vegetables into a roasting tin and cook for 15 mins. Meanwhile, dust the frozen fish in flour, brush lightly with the egg and cover with the frozen breadcrumbs. Pop the fish onto a grill rack and sit above the veg. Bake for 25 mins until the fish is cooked. Serve with lemon wedges.

Cooked from fresh.....not really sure why I need to know how to freeze.......Did not like the olives, next time would do with cherry vine tomatoes and a chilli. The breadcrumbs were amazing and complemented the fish lovely.

I cooked this from fresh - didn't freeze any as per the recipe. I thought it was all too dry. It needs some sort of sauce to bring it all together. Maybe adding some tinned tomatoes to the vegetable mix near the end of cooking time in the oven may have helped.
