Baked fish with creamed peas and bacon

Serves 4


For the fish:

  • 4 fillets of white fish such as hake, haddock, coley or pollock
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 15g butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

For the peas:

  • 120g mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 3 shallots, finely chopped
  • 40g butter
  • 280g frozen peas
  • 60ml cream
  • 4 streaky bacon rashers, cooked until crisp, drained and crumbled
  • Salt and black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C/180˚C fan/gas mark 6.
  2. Place the fish in a baking dish large enough to hold it in one layer. Season with salt and black pepper.
  3. Heat the butter and olive oil in a small pan over a medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook for one minute. Add the lemon and parsley and remove the pan from the heat. Pour the garlic mixture over the fish and place in the oven to bake for 12-14 minutes until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  4. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a pan over a medium heat and cook the mushrooms and shallots for 4-5 minutes until tender.
  5. Add the peas and cream and cook for another 3-4 minutes until the peas are tender. Stir in the bacon, season with salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  6. Serve the fish with the creamed peas and bacon.
