I couldn't get the tartar to work... i used pickled capers and rinsed them but it was so sour, any ideas?

cooking time needs reducing quite a lot (my oven is very new though)

Husband enjoyed it - me not so sure

Lovely - Homemade tartare sauce so much nicer than the bought version. Added chopped garlic to the chips too. Yum!

Really easy and tastes good. Will definitely make it often

Loved this healthy option.
Try adding chopped garlic and sprigs of rosemary to the potatoes.
Fish was lovely and moist. Timing was spot on.
The tartare sauce was easy and much tastier than the 'jar variety'.
