Baked Blue Cod Fillet with Herby Crust

Ingredients
2 x 180g/6oz pieces of blue cod fillet
2 tbsp fresh white breadcrumbs
2 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (such as a mixture of chervil, chives, parsley, coriander) - optional
1 clove garlic, crushed finely
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
140g/5oz new potatoes, any large ones cut in half
160g/6oz fresh or frozen peas or green beans
    Method
    1. Heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.
    2. Mix together the herbs (if using), garlic and oil. Stir in the breadcrumbs and season with salt and pepper. Put the fish on a baking sheet and spread the breadcrumb mixture over the fish. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until the flesh becomes opaque and flakes easily.
    3. Boil the potatoes in a large pan of water for 12-15 minutes, until cooked through. Boil the peas in a separate pan of water for a few minutes until just cooked. Then I like to add a dollop of butter on my potatoes!
    4. Take the cod out of the oven and serve with the potatoes and peas.
