Loved it! Fresh and light winter warmer, just added spinach to the sauce as an extra :)

Really enjoyed this. I made it with hake, and used oregano rather than thyme. Excellent sauce, and lovely with boiled potatoes.

Not great, would not bother again, Delia Smith does a much easier recipe that is similar to this, I will just stick to Delia's in future.

Used rosemary instead of thyme and it tasted great. I'll definitely add some lemon juice if I make it again. Served it with basmati and wild rice which went really nicely.

Did this with some river cobbler, really nice. Used crushed tomatoes from the garden rather than a tin, through a bit of broccoli in and served it with sautéed potatoes. Will be making it again.

Very tasty, added just a little garlic and some halved cherry tomatoes for some added bite. Served with roasted peppers stuffed with couscous and went down a treat. Best bit was I got to socialise rather than spend hours in the kitchen.

really enjoyed this recipe, the sauce was lovely. we used frozen fish but just cooked it in the oven for 15 minutes and slipped the pieces into the sauce for the last 5 or so minutes. Also made double the quantity of sauce, which was comfortably enough for three of us.

Think I'll try adding garlic to the base of the sauce plus some red wine and chilli... can't wait to try this!

Made this terrifically easy recipe with some inexpensive cod pieces, my picky husband absolutely loved it. A winner, so simple it hardly qualifies as a recipe!

I've used dried thyme - big mistake. I have blended the tomatoes for the souce. It goes better with my kids. Otherwise wje have enjoyed it.

About a foot of snow on the ground, so I used dried thyme, still worked well, and a really good sauce to go with the potatoes (and spring broccoli).

I made this for my tea tonight and it was absolutely delicious. I didnt have any soy sauce in the cupboard so used Balsamic Vinegar instead which tasted great but will definately give the soy sauce a go next time. I also added dried chilli flakes and sliced courgettes to make a chunkier sauce mmm mmm - looking forward to the leftovers for my lunch at work tomorrow.

Just tried this, but due to having no Thyme I substituted a sprinkle of Tarragon.

I like my food hot so I also added 1/2 a Scotch Bonnet chilli, without the seeds. This made for a spicy and very tasty fish dish.

Frozen cod doesnt taste that much...the tomato sauce was delicious but not the code...so the first time I made it was nt that good. the second time, in addtion to the ingredients above, I put some red wine and capers as well...and left in the oven 40 minutes more...then it was muuuch better!
