  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Toss the potatoes with the olive oil. Arrange on a baking tray. Season. Cook for 10 minutes.
  2. While the potatoes cook, whizz the bread in a food processor to make crumbs. Place in a bowl and stir in the pesto, lemon zest and half the lemon juice. Season. Press on top of the fish.
  3. After 10 minutes, turn the potatoes and make room on the tray for the fish (place fish on top of the potatoes if necessary). Turn the oven down to Gas Mark 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Cook for another 20-25 minutes until fish and potatoes are cooked through.
  4. Cook the frozen peas for 2-3 minutes in boiling, salted water, 5 minutes before the end of cooking. Drain. Serve with the fish and potatoes.
