4 pieces cod or other white fish

1 cup fresh breadcrumbs

3 tbs fresh parsley

2 tbs butter, melted

1 squeeze of lemon juice

1 pinch salt

1 pinch black pepper

3 medium mixed peppers - seeded and sliced

1 tbs rapeseed oil



  1. Put the sliced peppers on a baking tray and drizzle with the oil.

  2. Mix the breadcrumbs with the parsley, salt and pepper, then add the melted butter and lemon juice. Mix thoroughly.

  3. Place the fish in a shallow, ovenproof dish and press the buttered crumbs firmly onto the cod to form an even crust.

  4. Bake both trays at 220C for 20-25 minutes until the crust is browned and the fish just cooked through, and the peppers are soft and starting to brown.

  5. Serve immediately and enjoy!
