  • 4 fish fillets (we used blue cod)

Walnut crumb

  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs (we used Culley’s 
  • lemon herb panko crumb)
  • ¼ cup Italian parsley, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • ¾ cup fresh walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 70g unsalted butter, melted

Yoghurt sauce

  • 300g Greek yoghurt

  • 1 free range egg, lightly beaten
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • ½ shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp fresh chives, chopped
  • Seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 180°.
  2. In a baking dish, place the fish fillets in a single layer. 
  3. In a small bowl, place all the crumb ingredients and mix until combined. Set aside.
  4. Place all the sauce ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk together.
  5. Pour sauce over the fish and sprinkle the crumb over the top.
