Preheat the oven to 210C.

In a bowl, combine the cottage cheese, spring onions, coriander, cornichons, fennel, radish, lemon, 1 tsp sumac, 1 tbsp olive oil, and season to taste. Set aside.


Place the fish into the oven to bake for 12-15 minutes, until just cooked. Let rest for 2 minutes to finish cooking through on the tray.


Heat the grains and add the currants and parsley.


To serve, spoon some cottage cheese onto plates, top with grains, and the fish, and give a little drizzle of olive oil, extra lemon, and some fennel fronds if you have any.
