Notes about this recipe

    I really liked this dish, but after less than 10 minutes under the broiler in the center of the oven my breadcrumbs were completely blackened. Thankfully I had extra, and the fish (a thick piece of Atlantic cod) wasn't done yet, so I scraped off the burned bits, topped the fish with more crumbs and a drizzle of olive oil, turned off the broiler and put the fish back in a 375 oven for 5-8 minutes until the fish was just cooked through and the crumbs were nicely browned. Who knows, maybe broilers work differently in the UK?

    I’ve been wanting to make this for years and it’s as good as I’d hoped. The tomato topping is really intense, but I liked that. I used very soft white bread, it would be even better with some stale sourdough. The tartare is fantastic, tangy and bright - a perfect match with the fish. Next time I’ll make the rest of the sides

    The fish was okay. The topping consists of a very pungeant pesto which was just too intensly flavoured for me. The mushy peas and salad were really nice. Will make this again but will adjust the topping.

    Perfect for cod or tilapia which I usually find very bland. This was pretty easy and a good weekday meal. I didn't do any of the sides, which I am sure would have been great additions.

    Really enjoyed this dish. Used ling instead of cod and cooked it in the oven.

    I adapted this for the oven (350 for 20 minutes), but otherwise mostly followed the recipe. (I used hot pepper flakes instead of the fresh chile, and skipped the basil.) I concur that this is very tasty- although next time I would omit the Parmesan from the topping too- it isn’t needed with the rest of the umami-laden ingredients. Served with polenta and spinach.

    Slightly adapted this recipe to include ingredients I had in the cupboard (so no basil or fresh chilli, but a dash of peperoncino spice mix instead). And I made it all in the oven instead of using the grill. I was in no real hurry, so this worked for me. And I served it with cauliflower cheese made with gorgonzola and parmesan. It was utterly delicious - really good strong flavours. I'll definitely make it again.
