  • 4 tbsp hazelnuts
  • 2 shallots, quartered
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 1 tsp wasabi (powder or paste)
  • juice 1 lime
  • 4 x 140g sustainably sourced white fish fillets (haddock or cod)


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. To make the crust, use a mortar and pestle or processor to grind the hazelnuts with the shallots, garlic, coriander, wasabi and lime juice.

  2. Lay the fish fillets in a baking dish and smear the tops with the nutty mixture. Spoon a little water round the fillets, just enough to thinly cover the bottom of the baking dish. Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins until the fish is cooked through. Serve with rice, lime wedges and a green salad.
