  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Arrange the fish on the base of a shallow ovenproof dish, then spoon the salsa on top. Scatter with the cheese and bake for 15 mins or until the fish flakes when tested with the point of a knife.

  2. Meanwhile, stir the avocado with the lime juice, coriander and seasoning. Spoon it over the cooked fish, then scatter with the tortillas, lightly crushing them as you go. Serve with brown rice (we used pre-cooked microwave pouches to save time) and salad.

My kids love this meal, and it’s so simple that can help prepare it as well.

Quick, easy, nutritious and totally yummy! Great for a midweek meal or when you are in a rush. This is a family favourite.

My husband made it for us this evening. It was yummy, fresh and full of flavour and textures. Our 7 and 9 year old children loved it, too! I'll definitely be asking him to make it again soon.

Great mid-week meal and so quick and easy. I used medium salsa for the kids and hot salsa for the adults. Will be making this dish again!

We thought that this was very nice. I used a mild salsa dip as I think a hot one would overpower the fish. I made the topping with chopped cherry tomatoes, diced shallot ( first steeped in some lime juice) and avocado which I then served separately. Served with warm crusty bread.

Really liked this recipe, tasted great and so easy to do. I used spicy salsa though, without that I think it might have been a bit lacklustre.

Needs a bit more oomph to bring out the flavours of the tortilla, avocado and tomato salsa. Not disappointed but lacking something more even though I added a red pepper. I'd try it again to improve the overall flavour

We all loved this, including my 3 and 5 year old. Really quick, easy and tasty. Ideal for mid week. I served it with salad instead of rice.
