Crunchy-Topped Whiting With Brie

Crunchy-topped whiting with Brie

Serves 2-4

This is a great way of making delicately flavoured whiting into a more robust meal. 


  • 4 whiting fillets, ideally about 600g
  • 55g/2oz Brie cheese, slightly softened and sliced
  • 55g/2oz fresh breadcrumbs
  • 25g / 1oz melted butter
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
  2. Place the fish on to a board, skinned side uppermost and brush with the melted butter. Season.
  3. Place 15g/½oz Brie cheese on top of each fish. Roll up and place into a greased, ovenproof dish. Brush with any remaining butter.
  4. Prepare the topping: in a small bowl mix the breadcrumbs, parsley, lemon zest and olive oil together. Spoon over the fish.
  5. Cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Serve with a side salad.
