Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, red pepper, yellow pepper, spring onions, chilli, butter, crab meat and mozzarella cheese. Arrange fish in a single layer in a 20x30cm baking dish. Spread the crumb topping evenly over the fish.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven or until fish is easily flaked with a fork. If you have thin fillets, you may grill for 10 minutes instead of baking.

Jalapeno chillies
