A great way to give new life to the humble apples is to turn them into a slaw! They add colour, crunch and sweetness that pair perfectly with this baked fish with a homemade fresh, wholemeal crumb.


High fibre wholemeal bread

1 slice(s), very finely chopped

Fresh flat-leaf parsley

2 tsp, finely chopped

Fennel seeds

1 tsp

Fresh lemon rind

1 tsp, grated

Olive oil

1½ tbs

Ling, raw

500 g, (Buy 4 x 125g) or any firm white fish fillet


2 medium, 1 red, 1 green, unpeeled, cut into matchsticks

Brussels sprouts

400 g, thinly shredded (see tip)


1 stick(s), thinly sliced diagonally

Red onion

½ small, thinly sliced

Poppy seeds

1 tsp

Fresh red chilli

1 whole, deseeded, thinly sliced

Lemon juice

2 tbs


1 medium, cut into wedges to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Combine bread, parsley, fennel seeds, lemon rind and 2 tsp oil in a bowl. Season. Place fish on prepared tray and press bread mixture over top of each fillet. Bake for 12 minutes or until fish is just cooked and bread is golden.
  3. Meanwhile, place apple, brussels sprouts, celery, onion, poppy seeds, chilli, lemon juice and remaining oil in a large bowl. Season and toss to combine. Serve fish with coleslaw.


TIP: If using a mandolin to shred the brussels sprouts, leave the stem on and hold it while carefully shredding.
