Michel Roux Jr's Norwegian Haddock Baked with ginger and Coriander

I love the simplicity of this recipe using the freshest fish. It's quick and easy to cook that even a novice chef will be able to tackle with no trouble. 
All it takes it some chopped herbs and vegetables and supper is done in about 20 minutes. 
Perfect for those training for a marathon. 
Michel Roux Jr created this recipe for his own marathon training diet.
