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
Put the sliced peppers on a baking tray and drizzle with the oil.
Mix the breadcrumbs with the parsley, salt and pepper, then add the melted butter and lemon juice. Mix thoroughly.
Place the fish in a shallow, ovenproof dish and press the buttered crumbs firmly onto the cod to form an even crust.
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.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
