Daisy Ridley’s Baked Parmesan Fish

THE fresh-faced British actress notable for her sprightly, feisty edge was born Daisy Jazz Isobel Ridley to a banker mother and a photographer father living in the posh Maida Vale district in West London. The youngest of five sisters and step-sisters, Ridley was sent to study dance and acting at Tring Park School for the Performing Arts in Hertfordshire. Director J.J. Abrams announced he would be casting unknowns for the Star Wars reboot. After hearing this news, Ridley pushed her agent to wrangle an audition for her and eventually returned to read for Abrams five times before being cast as lead character Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. To get into shape for the highly anticipated film, Daisy said she ‘lived on fish’ and trained up to five hours a day – which totally paid off. Whilst we may not be training for a film role, we’re bringing you an amazing fish recipe this week that you just have to try!

Baked Parmesan Fish

Three quarters cup of grated Parmesan cheese

Half cup of butter (softened)

Three tablespoons of chopped green onions

Three tablespoons of mayonnaise

Two teaspoons of chives

Six pieces of white fish

Three tablespoons of lemon juice

Quarter teaspoon of pepper


MIX the cheese, butter, green onions, mayonnaise, and chives well and set aside. Place the pieces of fish in a single layer in a greased baking dish. Pour lemon juice over the fish and sprinkle with pepper. Bake for about 6 – 8 minutes or until it flakes easily. Remove from the oven and spread the top of fillets with the cheese mixture. Return to the oven for another 2 – 3 minutes or until the cheese is lightly browned and bubbly.
