Cheesy Grilled Fish

This has to be one of the easiest and tastiest fish dishes in the world – perfect for children and adults alike.


  • 4 x 150g fillets of fish – hake, haddock,pollock or whiting, skinned and boned
  • 2 ripe tomatoes
  • 100g Avonmore Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
  • 4 tablesp. mayonnaise
  • Sunflower oil, for greasing
  • Knob of Avonmore butter
  • Salt and freshly-ground black pepper


  1. Cut the tomatoes in half and remove the seeds, then finely dice the flesh and place in a bowl. Finely dice the Avonmore cheese and add to the bowl with the spring onions, then just bind with the mayonnaise. Season to taste.
  2. Preheat the grill to high. Arrange the fish on a lightly oiled, sturdy baking sheet and season lightly, then grill for 4-6 minutes until almost tender. The timing will depend on the thickness of the fillet. To check that it is cooked, gently prod the thickest part of the fish with the point of a knife and the flakes should separate easily.
  3. Quickly spread the mayonnaise mixture on top and flash under the grill for another 2 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling and golden.

Serving Suggestion

Arrange on warmed plates and serve immediately with a mixture of buttered green beans and peas and steamed potatoes.
