2. Lay the haddock, Parmesan-side up, on a grill rack lined with foil and cook under a preheated high grill for 5 - 6 minutes until golden and cooked through.
3. Meanwhile, mix together all the ingredients for the salsa in a bowl and season with plenty of pepper.
4. Serve the hot haddock fillets with the salsa spooned over, with a simple rocket salad and lemon wedges, if liked.
