    • 1 tablespoon fine dried breadcrumbs
    • 1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 225g (8oz) broccoli florets
    • 160g (53/4oz) frozen sweetcorn kernels, thawed
    • 1 red pepper, cut into thin strips

    1. Place the fillets in a shallow dish and brush with the vinaigrette. Cover and refrigerate.
    2. In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs with the Parmesan cheese and paprika.
    3. Preheat the oven to 220°C (425°F, gas mark 7). Brush four individual ovenproof dishes, or a 33x23x5cm (13x9x2in) ovenproof dish with oil.
    4. In a large bowl, mix together the broccoli, sweetcorn, red pepper, onion, parsley, basil and black pepper. Divide the vegetable mixture evenly among the dishes. Cover with foil and bake for 35–40 minutes or until the vegetables are just tender.
    5. Uncover the dishes and top the vegetables with the fish fillets. Cover again and bake for 8–10 minutes or until the fish is just cooked and still moist in the thickest part.
    6. Uncover the dishes and sprinkle with the breadcrumb mixture. Bake, uncovered, for a further 2–3 minutes or until the topping is golden. Serve immediately.

    Tried this recipe tonight leaving out the cheese and breadcrumbs as we on a low fat low carb diet but it was amazing  -  06 May 2016


    Cooked this yesterday for my tea. Next time I would blanch the broccoli first as they were still very hard when everything else was ready. Couldn't taste the vinaigrette on the fish either. I'll give it another go though.  -  12 Oct 2014
