    Thought I’d share this recipe as it was easy and yummy! I’m not one to often follow set recipes but it’s something I’m going to do more this year – less frozen/ready meals and more fish and vegetable dishes using fresh and organic ingredients is my aim.

    Gratin of Fish with Cheese, Tomatoes and Herbs

    Serves 2/Preparation 15 mins/Cooking time 20-30 mins


    50g Gruyere cheese
    50g Emmental cheese
    2 tsp Dijon mustard
    3 tbsp double cream
    12 cherry tomatoes, halved
    1 tsp fresh tyme, or 1 tbsp torn basil
    salt & freshly ground black pepper
    200g fish fillets eg plaice or lemon sole, skinned


    1. Preheat oven to 180c/Gas 4.
    2. In a bowl mix the grated cheese with the mustard and cream and add a twist of black pepper.
    3. Season the cherry tomatoes with a little salt and sprinkle with the herbs.
    4. Spread half the cheese mixture in a pie dish or gratin dish.
    5. Lay half the fish fillets on top, and then add all the tomatoes and herbs.
    6. Add the final layer of fish, followed by the final layer of cheese mixture. This dish can be put in the fridge until you are ready to cook it.
    7. Cook in the oven for 20-30 minutes until golden and bubbly.

    Serve with green salad and boiled new potatoes.

    The original recipe was for 4 people and only doubled the quantity of fish but I think you need all that lovely cheese for just 2 of you 🙂
