  • 4 chunky skinless white fish fillets, such as hoki or cod, about 500g/1lb 2oz total weight
  • oil, for brushing
  • 4 thin slices of ham
  • 50g grated mature cheddar
  • 2 spring onions, sliced at an angle


  1. Preheat the grill to high and lightly oil a large shallow heatproof dish. Arrange the fillets in the dish, slightly spaced apart, and brush them with a little oil. Grill for 2 minutes.

  2. Remove the dish from the grill, turn the fish over and top each fillet with a scrunched slice of ham. Mix together the cheese and onions, scatter over the fish and season with salt and pepper. Return to the grill for 5 minutes until the fish flakes easily when prodded with a knife. Serve with green vegetables – broccoli or stir-fried cabbage would be good.
