Method

  1. Place the fish in a large bowl, add 2 tbsp of the olive oil, orange zest and season well. Carefully toss the fish to coat, cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Put the raisins into a small bowl, pour over the orange juice and set to one side. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.

  2. Place the peppers in a large shallow, ovenproof pan (approx 35cm diameter) or large shallow roasting tray and drizzle with the remaining olive oil. Season, toss together and roast in the oven for 30 mins. Toast the pine nuts on a baking tray on another shelf of the oven for 8-10 mins, until golden.

  3. Arrange the fish and raisins on top of the peppers and pour over the juices. Scatter the pine nuts over and season with a good pinch of salt. Cook in the oven for 12-15 mins until the fish is just cooked through. Scatter with parsley and bring to the table.

Made this for a dinner party with the garlicky fondant potatoes & steamed broccoli - it was a hit with everyone. The fish was lovely and moist.

Made this many times and always enjoyed it. First made it when it was in the Good Food magazine a few years ago. I just use salmon rather than 2 different fish. Goes well with couscous I think to soak up the juices

I wasn't really bowled over by this to be honest. My friends really enjoyed it, but to me it was slightly lacking something. Using 2 fish was a nice noveltly, but does make it rather expensive. The fondant potatoes recommended with it was a complete winner though!

The orange marinade was nice but we didn't particularly like the raisins and weren't too fussed about the pine nuts. The peppers were nice and the fish came out nicely too, but I've had nicer salmon dishes.

This is a great favourite with the family - the fish is succulent and has a lovely flavour. I cook with garlicy fondant potatoes. Yum!

is it just me, or does the picture look like they haven't cooked the fish properly?

A great dinner party dish. I could not get thick cod so just doubled the quantity of salmon. Would definitely make again.

I only used 1 tbsp of olive oil overall and that was for roasting the peppers, I did not use any oil in the marinade and it was delicious and much lighter.
