Yields4 ServingsPrep Time5 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time20 mins

This recipe uses up all those half eaten jars pesto, cheese and dressings from the fridge and cupboards. Serve with a green salad or green beans and new potatoes or chips.

 4-6 fish fillets, such as salmon, cod, haddock, ling, trout or mackerel
 Olive oil for brushing
 1 tbsp leftover pesto or herby dressings
 100 g cherry tomatoes, halved and quartered
 2 tbsp herbs such as basil, parsley or dill
 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
 1 tbsp capers, rinsed and drained
 2-3 tbsp grated cheese

Pre-heat the grill. Brush a baking tray with oil and arrange the frozen fish fillets over the top. Drizzle with oil and season. Cook for 6 minutes on one side, and then carefully flip them over.


Meanwhile pull out any opened jars such as pesto or herby dressings. Spoon into a bowl and mix in the chopped cherry tomatoes, chopped fresh herb, crushed garlic and capers.


Scatter the salsa over the fish fillets and sprinkle with grated cheese, return to the grill and continue to cook for a further 6 minutes until the fish is cooked through and topping is bubbling.
