This is a very easy fish recipe with a nice fresh tang from the green herb topping. You could also cook the fish on the barbecue.

I tried a very similar recipe out and Yes - it is easy, tasty. My fish steaks were a firm white fish about 20 mm thick. Cooked on a "Weber Q" BBQ at 200c for 4 minutes each side. - 06 Aug 2011
