Yummm! The fish was soft and flaky and the wonderfully crumbly top is so crunchy and delicious too. We added a little chopped fresh chili and garlic which gave a lovely kick to the overall flavor. If your fish was frozen do make sure to get as much moisture out of it as possible, perhaps defrost the previous evening.
