RECIPE

Ingredients :

4 cod steaks (approx 175g/6oz each) (I cut mine into 2 steaks only)

200g/7oz/1¾ cups grated Cheddar cheese

15ml/1 Tbsp wholegrain mustard

75ml/5 Tbsp double (heavy) cream

salt and ground black pepper

Methods :

  • Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/Gas Mark 6.
  • Check the fish for bones …butter the base and sides of an ovenproof dish then place the fish steaks skin side down in the dish and season
  • In a small bowl, mix the grated cheese and mustard together with enough cream to form a spreadable but thick paste
  • Make sure that the cheese and mustard are thoroughly blended to ensure an even taste … season lightly with salt and ground black pepper
  • Spread the cheese mixture thickly and evenly over each fish steak, using it all up
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes
  • The top will be browned and bubbling and the fish underneath flaky and tender
  • Serve up immediately on warmed plates
