I omitted the soy sauce and thyme as had no thyme. Made this with chorizo, garlic and smoked paprika as suggested in one of the comments. Delicious and two of the three kids loved it! Will def try again with soy and thyme. Definitely a keeper for random white fish we get I our fish box

That is a completely different recipe & a very well known one at that.

All of the household, including my two year old like this, healthy, low calorie and very tasty - recommended!

Tasty and really simple recipe. I added garlic and omitted the soy sauce and sugar. Even my super fussy kids liked it. It made a perfect lunch, served with steamed new potatoes, carrots and brocolli. I prefer origano in tomato sauces, so next time I'm going to use origano instead of thyme, and salmon filets and prawns instead of white fish, which I think are more flavoursome (and healthier!).

Unless you're buying organic, farmed salmon it isn't healthier, it's toxic & there are no real health benefits from prawns, and again, they contain toxins.

Great midweek meal. Added bonus is that the kids absolutely love it too! Very tasty and very quick to make.

Scrumptious and simple dish, which I served for a main for a night in with a friend.
Recipe slightly tweaked; additional garlic, handful more of extra thyme and straying from the soy sauce requirement. Not the most spectacular presentation on the plate, perhaps this can be worked on.

Simple and delicious dish for those new to and practising cooking. I also added garlic and avoided the soy sauce. It went down a treat for a Monday evening dinner!

Lost all the flavours when the soy sauce took over, even though I only put 1 tbs in. Disappointing.

Delicious. Added lots of garlic. Will definitely be making again! I do agree it does need just a little bit of doctoring so maybe a few olives next time, and a touch of chilli.

Delicious and simple, though it needed a bit of spicing up. Also difficult to make it look elegant, but will definitely do again.

Brilliant............garlic, a few drops of tabasco and a handful of green and black olives (unstoned) and a stonking good Chablis......heaven on earth.

Lovely dish, I added chilli and garlic...was still lacking a little something so will tweak next time but overall was great.

Put garlic in with the onions and more thyme and we all loved it

I make this regularly, it's great. Really quick, simple and healthy. I do add extra thyme and garlic (as I do in most things) and I've added chilli a few times to up the flavour - it's lovely! :)

I'm not the biggest of fans of tomatoe sauces, though do eat them occasionally. I thought I would give this recipe a try based on the comments and the fact that it looked like an easy and healthy dinner. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy this meal. I found the tomatoes too overpowering, even the increased amount of thyme did not help. The fish itself was bland after 'scrubbing off' the sauce so I will not be giving this another chance.

Made this for the mother-in-law, and it went down a treat. Really tasty dish, highly recommend you give this one a try.
