Baked Fish with Cheese – an Archaeology Gastronomy recipe

This recipe comes from Art of Cookery, a cookbook written by an ancient Greek called Mithaecus.  The original recipe had one line: gut, cut off head and discard, rinse, serve with olive oil and cheese.  We’ve done a little bit more!

Baked Fish with Cheese - an Archaeology Gastronomy recipe
  • 1 tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 50g cottage cheese (you could also use crumbled feta cheese)
  • 50g breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 fillets of fish - I used sea bass
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat your oven to 190 degrees C
  2. Mix the cottage cheese with the herbs and breadcrumbs. Add the olive oil.
  3. Place the fish on a greased baking tray and sprinkle over salt and pepper.
  4. Press the breadcrumb mixture into the fish and bake in the oven for ten to fifteen minutes (twenty minutes if your fillets are on the larger side).
