Preheat the oven to Gas 6/200°C/Fan 180°C. Heat the oil in a large heavy based frying pan and cook the shallots and bacon over a moderate heat for 3-4 minutes, until softened. Add the tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes then add the wine and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes until almost all the wine has evaporated and the sauce is thick and pulpy. Stir in the parsley and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Place the seabass fillets into a lightly buttered shallow ovenproof dish in a single layer. Spoon the sauce evenly over each fillet. Mix the breadcrumbs with the cheese and scatter over the sauce. Cook in the preheated oven for 15 minutes until the top is golden and bubbling. Serve with warm crusty bread and salad.
