    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 500g cherry tomatoes
  • 50g black olive
  • 25g pine nut
  • large handful of fresh basil leaves


  1. Preheat the oven to fan 180C/ conventional 200C/gas 6. Take the fish fillets with the skin on, and season with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large pan and cook the fillets skin side down for 2-3 minutes until just crisp. Transfer to a large roasting tin, skin side down.

  2. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and scatter around the fillets. Cut the olives in half and scatter over the tomatoes, followed by the pine nuts. Season.

  3. Put the tray in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the fish is tender. Remove from the oven and scatter the tomatoes with a the basil leaves. Spoon onto four warm plates and top each with fish. Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil.

Delicious! Tried it with monkfish, would use cod next time though. Served with a sundried tomato mash (mix in oil from sundried tomato jar and chopped up tomatoes - fantastic!)

Really easy to make, very healthy, light and delicious. We have it with new potatoes and green beans and usually use cod or haddock. Recommended!

For what it is and how easy it is to make, it's worth 5 stars! Made it tonight with code fillet. It was simple and delicious! Great for a summer night dinner. I paired it with mixed salad with quinoa, goat cheese, mint and red onion. Perfect!

fab superfast recipe with a really tasty finish - I have used it with a huge about of different fish but monkfish, cod and haddock all work the best and you can prepare it in advance pop it in the fridge and just cook it when you are ready - my kind of dinner party food
