Cheesy Grilled Cod

 Serves: 2


  • 400 g of cod fillets
  • 2 ripe tomatoes
  • 100g cheddar cheese 
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Sunflower oil, for greasing
  • Knob of butter
  • Salt and black pepper


  1. Cut the tomatoes in half and remove the seeds, then finely dice the flesh and place in a bowl.
  2. Finely dice the cheese and add to the bowl with the spring onions, then just bind with the mayonnaise.
  3. Preheat the grill to high. Arrange the fish on a lightly oiled, sturdy baking sheet and season lightly, then grill for 4-6 minutes until almost tender. The timing will depend on the thickness of the fillet. To check that it is cooked, gently prod the thickest part of the fish with the point of a knife and the flakes should separate easily.
  4. Quickly spread the mayonnaise mixture on top and flash under the grill for another 2 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling and golden.
