  1. FOR THE CRUSTED COD. Preheat the oven. Mix the breadcrumbs, Parmesan and parsley in a shallow bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Dip the top of each cod fillet into the flour and then into the beaten egg white. Finally press the top of the cod fillet into the breadcrumb mixture to get an even crust. Place the cod fillets on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the cod is cooked through and the breadcrumbs are golden brown.
  3. MEANWHILE, FOR THE MIXED SUMMER VEGETABLES. Cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 8-10 minutes. Towards the end of the cooking time, add the asparagus and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until tender. Drain well.
  4. Heat the butter and 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan. Add the asparagus and tomatoes and heat through. Remove from the heat and toss with the boiled new potatoes and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  5. FOR THE SALAD. To make the vinaigrette, mix together the balsamic vinegar, mustard, and 3 tbsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve the crusted cod with the lemon wedges, summer vegetables and the dressed salad.
