Excellent fish recipe and soooooo easy! With the left over sauce I just added some more fish and veggies and had fish soup the next day! Delicious!

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!

Great way to make cod more interesting. I didnt have any thyme and added spinach which was lovely. Will definitely make again.

I really didn't care for this. Definitely easy to make, but the taste was not that interesting or vibrant. Just ordinary.

So easy to make - and delicious! I had no confidence about cooking fish, but this was so easy!

Enjoyed this meal, it was quick and easy to make but needed some seasoning adding to it. Served it with baby new potatoes and brocolli - it was very tasty and would make it again.

Added half a garlic clove, really delicious and so easy. Used a piece of cod loin I had frozen so took a while longer, served with broccoli.

Nice and easy to make, would make again as a weekday meal, but found it a little bit bland even after adding more and more thyme!

As my boyfriend was diagnosed with a high level of cholesterol I had to change our daily menus and become best friend with all kinds of fish you can find in the supermarkets. So when I joined this website I was more than pleased to find loads of fish recepies. But honestly, this one is a winner!!!
I made it with cod and added some gralic to the onions(there's never too much garlic for me) and later some chilli, not too much just a bit to give the dish some extra kick without overpowering the fish itself. It turned out to be a real crowd pleaser. Tasted great, looked great and what's even more important it took me less than 20 min to cook (including boiling potates on the side). I don't know where the smoky flavour came from but it gave me an idea to add some chorizo next time for some extra texture. Try it yourself, you won't be disappointed. Buon appetit.

Mixed opinions on this one. I made the 4 person quantity of sauce for 2 and there was a bit too much, however, it was very flavoursome. My OH was not so sure about the fish poached in the sauce and apparently it did not go well with the rice, broccoli and green beans I served it with.

This was beautiful. I used the same amount of sauce for two instead of four. And i didn't have any thyme so used a bit of tarragon and that was nice. Served with new pots and veg.

Just made this for the first time tonight and loved it. Only thing was,i didn't make enough sauce..typical. Next time i make it i'm taking a few hints from the comments on here aswell,and maybe adding some peppers and some spices....and will make sure i have ample sauce. Now i'm no Gordon Ramsey when it comes to cooking,but i do enjoy it and this was very easy to make and very tasty.

Very easy - I used coriander instead of thyme and worked very well!

I made this last night and it was really tasty, i also added some pancetta when i was frying the onions and i used lemon thyme as ordinary wasn't available. I served it with asparagus, green beans ,roasted cubes of potato and sweet potato
I think the sauce is very versatile and could be used with chicken as well as fish
