I cooked the fish separately in the oven. It worked well and I didn't find the lettuce, peas, spring onions and creme fraiche mix watery. I also did it with mash.

Basically nice, but with all the water in the bottom of the bowl I thought that the fish was going to start swimming.

Quite bland, though

This is yum, and so easy. I covered in foil and ovenbaked instead of microwaving and it was fine.

Bear in mind the lettuce gives off lots of water so there's lots of runny sauce at the end - perfect with mash.

Great recipe, I put a little veg bouillon in with the crème fraîche which works well. I usually serve it with rice or cous cous both of which work well.

This is a perfect dish for when I don't know when my husband's going to be home - just get it prepared and when he's in stick it in the microwave. He likes it too!

This was a excellent dish. I really loved and and it was so quick and easy.

I subsituted soured cream instead of creme fraiche but it still worked really really well.

I made this in desperation as I happened to have all these ingredients in the fridge and I needed something quick and easy. I also threw in some sliced courgette.
It was suprisingly good and I will definitely add it to my midweek, quick and easy repertoire!
