Served the salad and Rocket with a whole Trout - the salad went down really well (unlike the over-boney trout). Definitely try it again but with some lovely Hake.

Gorgeous! very quick and very tasty. Made it for friends coming round for dinner and they loved it! Very light so would be perfect if you had a dessert! :)

We tried this one summer evening and I couldn't believe how flavorsome it was! The potatoe salad goes so nicely with the fish and it all just tied in brilliantly. I would highly reccomend this! 8/10

Loved everything but found the fish a little bland for this recipe ... would prefer a delicate piece of red meat to go with it.

My wife and I throughly enjoyed this recipe, although I made a few small changes. I fried off Haddock fillets in Olive oil, lightly seasoned and flaked them through the salad, a bit more mayo and I added Sundried tomatoes too. As mentioned by other the rocket does balance it up nicely. Next time I think I'll try it with Pasta and chicken. This is definatly a winner in my house!

This was lovely and very simple to do. Instead of brushing with olive oil, I used some oil from the jar of peppers as it had more flavour.

Have made this recipe twice now and both times the grilled fish has turned out perfectly for the timings stated!
Lovely combination of ingrediants and the potato salad definately a winner. I will be making the potato salad again this year for bbq's. The last time I made this I didn't use Rocket but this was a mistake as the dish needs the combination of peppery, saltly and creamy tastes to avoid it tasting bland.

I didn't grill the fish, I just coated in egg and breadcrumbs and gently fried it. The potato salad was gorgeous and went reallly well with the fish, it would even be good on it's own, definately will make this again throughout the summer.
