A simple but effective recipe to make the best of sustainable Cornish Brill fillets, a delicious meaty flatfish.
 
1. Arrange the Brill fillets on a lightly greased baking tray, brush with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
 
2. In a large frying pan heat a few glugs of olive oil and then add the red onion that has been cut into a medium dice. Cook without colour for 5 minutes.
 
3. Place the Brill in a preheated oven 180°c for 12 minutes.
 
4. Chop the garlic and add this to the cooking onion along with the mushrooms that have been wiped clean of any dirt. Cook this off for 5 minutes stirring occasionally to ensure even cooking.
 
5. Near the end of cooking add the cherry tomatoes, a few drops of soy and a little seasoning to the cooking mushrooms. 
 
6. At the last minute add a handful of chopped flat leaf parsley to the cooking mushrooms and stir in.
 
7. To serve place a mound of the mushroom and tomatoes in the centre of 4 warmed plates and lay the fish fillet on the top.
 
8. This dish is great served with a side dish of homemade chips with a sprinkle of sea salt and cider vinegar.
