Bake for 10-12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.
Hint: when you think the fish still has a minute to go, it’s ready… it tends to continue cooking for a bit once removed from the oven.

The cheese should be golden, and your fish, succulent.

Serving Tip:
Serve with thin strips of raw baby marrow which have been marinated for 10 minutes in olive oil, lemon juice, and a little salt.
