Method

 
Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Place the fish on a greased baking tray. Mix the butter, garlic and parsley together and spread a little onto the fish. Place a lemon slice on each piece.

Beat the egg with 15ml of water. Put the crumbs in a shallow dish. Dip the courgettes into the egg then into the crumbs, turning to coat them well. Spread out on a baking tray that has been lined with baking paper.

Bake the fish and the courgettes together in a preheated oven for about 20 minutes, until cooked. Turn the courgettes once during the cooking time. Top the fish with a little butter as soon as it comes out of the oven.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
