  • 1.

    Heat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/ Gas 6. Sprinkle 3 tbsp sesame seeds onto a plate. Add a good pinch of salt. Rinse your pollock. Roll through the sesame seeds, coating as much of the fish as possible. Set on a baking tray.

    Pop your fish in the oven. Cook for 8-10 mins or till the sesame seeds are golden and the fish is just cooked through. Continue simmering your broth as the fish cooks.

    Roughly chop your chervil. Spoon the broth into bowls. Scatter over most of the chervil . Perch the fish on top. Garnish with the reserved chervil and serve straight away.
