Servings 4 people


  • 4 haddock fillets unsmoked
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 80 g white breadcrumbs
  • 15 g tarragon
  • 15 g parsley
  • 1 lemon zest and juice
  • 300 g cherry tomatoes

To Serve:

  • 240 g white rice
  • 400 g spinach
  • 20g salted butter
  • 1 small garlic clove


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a large tray with baking parchment.
  • Mix mayonnaise and crushed garlic in a small bowl.
  • Chop the leaves of parsley and tarragon. In a separate bowl, mix together white breadcrumbs, tarragon, parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice and a pinch of salt.
  • Place haddock fillets on the baking tray and scatter cherry tomatoes around them.
  • Spread a layer of garlic mayonnaise on each of the haddock fillets. Then spoon the herby breadcrumb mixture on top and press down so that the breadcrumbs stick to the fish.
  • Drizzle everything with a little olive oil and pop the tray in the oven to bake for approx. 15 minutes.
  • Whilst the fish cooks, cook your rice following pack instructions. When cooked, stir in half of the butter.
  • When your fish and rice are about 3 minutes away from being cooked, melt the rest of the butter in a large frying pan. Add spinach and thinly sliced garlic and stir until all the spinach has just started to wilt - it should only take a couple of minutes.
  • To plate, use a large spatula (or a dough scraper) to lift the fish out of the baking tray. Serve with spinach, roasted cherry tomatoes and buttery rice on the side.
