Delicious and easy. The sauce was really great, I'd never thought of putting soy sauce in a tomato sauce like this, though I always add a little sugar. I also put in a few capers, really nice. Served it with a nice crusty french stick and salad. Lovely healthy dinner!

Very nice. Added some garlic and sliced yellow pepper to the onion, and then some frozen green beans at the end.

I made this dish last night, using haddock, it was delicious! The fresh thyme made it fresh. Served it with a side of Jasmine rice. My husband enjoyed it so much & was happy I doubled the sauce recipe. He has requested we have it again soon! Have shared the recipe with all my friends.

Agreed, this will totally win over anyone who has a dislike for fish. Also super cheap if you use pollack, and if you let the fish flake up and break into pieces it mixes in nicely with the sauce and no one would know the difference.

I would recommend putting some sun dried tomatoes in too, makes it even more tomatoey!

This was very easy, very quick and very tasty. It could have done with a little more sauce, but otherwise great. I served it with new potatoes and broccoli and felt good that my dinner was so healthy for a change!

Very easy to make , used the Lemon Thyme it did make the flavour stand out ,but maybe I used more than the recipe suggested . I have made this twice now have and had no complaints even from the fussy eaters .

This has got to be the easiest fish recipe ever that suits just about every occasion. I've found it especially great for a night in with the girls - serve it with rocket/spinach salad and crusty bread. Also - if you are following the Slimming World plant, just substitute the sugar for candarel and the olive oil for fry light (it really doesn't make loads of difference) and bob's your uncle - free on red or extra easy!
