Easy recipe - the chips were okay, but the fish wasn't anything special. Also, the tartar sauce just wasn't flavourful enough so would use my own recipe next time!

Very nice, healthy version of a classic dish. The tartar sauce is simply delicious. Added peas to the dish though, as I prefer to eat some vegetables as well.

I love this dish it is the best fish and chips ever. I use it regularily for entertaining and serve with roasted vine tomatoes and balsamic vinega and pea puree. For the chuncky chips I lighlly dust with flour and drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and bake in moderate oven for 30 to 35 minutes, Divine!

Delicious!! The chips were fab and loved the tartare sauce. Keep turning the chips though, the recipe doesn't tell you that!!

Didn't try the tartar sauce but wanted to cook fish that didn't have sauce or breadcrumbs as my daughter can't eat dairy or gluten. This fish was fabulous so tasty and the time was just right. I always cook chips like this. I will definitely be making this dish one of our regulars.

As a reluctant dieter, I can safely say that this one is a total winner.

Soooo good.

sophie&richard: I found the tartar a little sour, so I added a little honey to balance out the tartness, or you could add less lemon too.

I cooked this yesterday, very nice. I also added capers to the the fish and also a little bit of garlic (half a clove with the middle stem removed). The chips worked very well. All in all a very well balanced meal and clean plates all round.

I have just seen it on website and I was stuck as to what to cook for dinner this evening. I have all ingredients in so I'll give it a whirl. I'm looking forward to it now and will rate and comment later.
