  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 baking potatoes
  • 2 x 250g packs Asda Line Caught Cod Fillets
  • 4 tsp Asda Green Pesto
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 50g Asda Grated Mozzarella & Cheddar mix
  • 25g fresh breadcrumbs
  • Green beans, to serve
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Grease an ovenproof dish with a little of the oil and place the cod fillets in a single layer.

  • Rinse the potatoes and cut into wedges. Put them in a pan, cover with cold water, bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain and pat dry with kitchen paper.

  • Tip them into a bowl with the rest of the oil. Toss to coat them evenly, then spread out on a baking tray, making sure they don't touch, and bake for 30 minutes.

  • Spread each cod fillet with 1 tsp pesto and top with the sliced tomato. Season with black pepper.

  • Mix the grated cheese with the breadcrumbs then sprinkle on top of the fish.

  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the fish flakes easily. Serve with wedges and green beans.
