About this recipe: This simple baked fish dish benefits from a lovely crumbly breadcrumb and cheese topping. It's a great way to get kids to enjoy fish that isn't fried! If you prefer, try other types of fish for this recipe - such as haddock, pollock or even halibut.

  • 4 tablespoons seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 450g cod fillets
  • 50g butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Alternatives to cod:

Try this recipe with inexpensive fresh coley or pouting. They both belong to the cod family but are much cheaper and available in larger supermarkets or fishmongers.
