Californian Grilled Fish

10 minutes - 15 minutes
to cook

If you have a jar of lovely Coriander and Lime Tartare Sauce (see below) a wonderful way to use it is to spread it on to some fish fillets, then sprinkle with cheese and breadcrumbs and pop them under a pre-heated grill.

You'll have one of the fastest and most delectable suppers imaginable.

  • Ingredients


Begin by wiping the fish fillets with kitchen paper to get them as dry as possible, then place them in the foil-lined grill pan.

Season with salt and pepper, then spread the Coriander and Lime Tartare Sauce all over the surface of the fish. Now, in a bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, cheese, coriander, cayenne and lime zest together, then sprinkle this over the fish as evenly as possible. Dot with a little butter.

Place the grill pan as far from the heat as possible and grill the fish for 10-15 minutes, depending on its thickness – it should be just cooked through  and the top should be crispy and golden. Serve with tiny new potatoes, tossed in chives and lemon juice, and a plain lettuce salad.


You will also need a grill pan, lined with foil and smeared with a trace of butter.
