This is virtually an all-in-one meal cooked under the grill, except perhaps it needs a few new potatoes and a green salad to accompany it.

|2 medium ripe red tomatoes|
|2 tablespoons breadcrumbs|
|1 level tablespoon fresh chopped herbs (a mixture of parsley, thyme and tarragon – or if these are not available use ½ level teaspoon dried thyme, ½ level teaspoon dried tarragon and 1 tablespoon parsley)|

|juice of half a lemon|
|2 tablespoons olive oil|
|a little extra oil|

Spoon the rest over the tomato halves.
