Don't eat fish too often, but will definitely make this again. Very tasty, simple and quick to make. Some of my family who aren't fish lovers, thought this was delicious.

I used mediterranean bread for the breadcrumbs and served it with roasted tomatoes, peppers, onion and sweet potatoes and my family loved it. The lemon flavour in the topping was lovely. Perhaps a little less mayonnaise is needed - just enough to make the breadcrumbs stick without making it soggy.

I'm not a great fan of fish but realise it is good for you. I tried this recipe tonight - it is simple - and really delicious! Will be cooking it again! I used wholemeal breadcrumbs, but it still tasted lovely.

Easy to do; tastes delicious. I used unsmoked haddock and ordinary tomatoes cut in half and I put the topping on them too.
