  1. Bake frozen fillets in buttered foil for 30 minutes (or according to brand packaging).

  2. Make sure any excess liquid has drained away, then place fillets in a grill-proof dish.

  3. Make a breadcrumb mix by putting four to five slices of either stale brown bread or slices of an Italian bread like ciabatta in the blender.

  4. To the breadcrumbs add fresh-ground pepper, finely chopped garlic, herbs, grated parmesan and other ingredients according to taste (such as a little squeezed lemon, crushed capers, finely chopped chilli, or sliced strips of shallot).

  5. Give this a good stir with a tablespoon of olive oil.

  6. Scatter this topping over the fish.

  7. Drizzle over a little more oil.

  8. Grill on a medium heat for about 10 minutes, without letting it burn.
