Prepare the crust for the fish by mixing all of the ingredients together in a small bowl.
Brush the top of fish (skin side) lightly with olive oil and season.
Using your hands sprinkle the crumb onto the top of your fish fillets and push into the flesh.
Place crust side up in the baking dish and cook for between 10-12 minutes until the fish flakes easily.
If the crust is not turning golden toward the end of cooking time, turn on your grill for the final couple of minutes.
While the fish is cooking, combine all of the salsa ingredients together in a small bowl and mix thoroughly and season.
