RECIPE | World’s Tastiest Fish Dish
I was hungover when I was first introduced to this fish dish. It was the morning after a raucous wedding and Hubby and I were having a full, grilled breakfast with friends. I mentioned I was cooking for some close friends the following week and it was then, in that moment that a wonderful friend suggested a dish she’d encountered; a fish recipe. It has morphed over the past ten years and been tweaked here and there and now, finally, it’s ready to be sent out into the world to change lives!
It is super-fast and easy to prepare. It tastes delicious and it’s packed with goodness. What’s not to love?
(To feed a family of 4/5)
- Large Oven Dish
- Fish – Enough, so that the bottom of your large oven dish is covered with meaty fish, you’ll know how much is enough to feed your family. Skinned and boned. I use whatever white fish is available: Cod loin, cod fillet, haddock, pollock, coley.
- Cherry Tomatoes – approx 350g
- Fine Green Beans – approx 150g
- Fresh Basil – 3 or 4 handfuls. The more the better.
- Fresh Mozzarella – 5 packs approx (though this depends on the size of your dish, I always get extra and then accidentally eat the leftovers with a few basil leaves and a glass of red wine as I’m washing up. Oops!)
- Salt and Pepper
- Rinse the fish and pat dry with some kitchen roll. Fill the base of your oven dish with the fish pieces and then season well with plenty of salt and pepper.
- Scatter a fine layer of green beans on top of the fish then cover with a layer of fresh basil leaves.
- Halve your cherry tomatoes and then layer these on top of the basil leaves. Season the tomatoes with salt and pepper and then add another layer of fresh basil leaves.
- Finally, top with thick slices of fresh mozzarella so that the entire dish is covered.
- Put in a pre-heated oven (190 C) for around 30-40 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbling.
- Serve with some warmed chunky bread or lashings of garlic bread – this is needed to mop up all the delicious juice that you’ll find at the bottom of the dish once you’ve served up.

I love Junkyard Golf Club in Manchester. I may be a grown up but I felt like I could be a big kid in there, but with a cocktail in my hand at all times. It’s really whacky and weird, and we laughed our way around 2 out of 3 golf courses.
What I like best about Odyssey Greek restaurant is that it genuinely feels like you’re holiday! No mean feat considering the restaurant is actually located in Chesterfield town centre. My husband and I are huge fans of Greece. Between us we’ve ticked off most of the Greek islands and have shared many happy memories there so it’s wonderful to have somewhere that feels like being on holiday on our doorstep. A perfect venue for date night!
For its size, Chesterfield is surprisingly well served by independent cafés and eateries, but Bottle and Thyme is definitely one of the best. With its rustic, shabby chic decor, you are immediately made welcome by the friendly, well-trained staff. Most importantly, in my book, is that they know how to make a great coffee. Proper baristas mean this is the place for some of the best coffee in Chesterfield. There’s far too tempting a selection of cakes and brownies.
