This was easy but didn't taste of much. I used skinless river cobbler. We don't like olives so I thought it would be nice to add some green veg such as green beans or broccoli.

Very quick & easy. I ate it with some rice and it was a really tasty dinner. Great if your watching what you eat.

This was okay but I found it a little tasteless, I think it would be fairly low in calories and quite healthy, it was simple to make and it didn't involve a lot of ingredients - might make it again and add something to it.

I see most people loved this so I'm guessing it must have been the fish I used, but this came out awful. We couldn't finish it and will be binning the leftovers. I'm working with fish available in Australia and went with Nile Perch which was my downfall. The fish wasn't firm at all and tasted way too 'fishy' which didn't work with the Mediterranean flavours at all. I imagined this would be lovely, so I might give it a tentative go another time with different fish, but this attempt has left a really bad taste in my mouth.

So quick and easy not to mention tasty for such few ingredients. Used skinless cod to cut down on cooking process, ready within 15 mins. Not keen on olives so removed and used lemon juice, mixed herbs on bed of puy lentils.

I used skinless fish so didn't need to fry it first. So easy, and we all loved it.

Wow. Have just found a new and delicious recipe. thank you. I used tilapia fillets (which happened to be on offer) and added some asparagus to the dish. Didn't need to fry first as the tilapia was skinless and quite thin. So easy and tasty, Will definitely make again.

Delicious and so easy - I added the basil leaves about a minute before the end so they just started to roast and give off their gorgeous flavour. A definite regular from now on.

Very light & tasty for a dish so easy - did without pine nuts (as didn't have any!) but still good - will try again with next time. Served with new pots & green beans.

Excellent quick & tasty meal, loved the smell of the roasting basil when I opened the oven! Replaced pine nuts with almonds which I had on hand. Used Yellow tail fish (South Africa), served with steamed sweet potato and carrots. Yummies!

Delicious! Tried it with monkfish, would use cod next time though. Served with a sundried tomato mash (mix in oil from sundried tomato jar and chopped up tomatoes - fantastic!)

Really easy to make, very healthy, light and delicious. We have it with new potatoes and green beans and usually use cod or haddock. Recommended!
