This is a simple, quick and tasty week-night dish. I fried the onion in chilly oil which gave it a nice kick and also added a little salt.

Really tasty dish. Plenty of sauce as used same quantities but with only 2 pieces of cod. Really simple mid week dinner that I will be making again!

Really easy and very tasty and light. I used fresh basil instead of rosemary and just stirred through near the end. Will definitely cook again

I can only agree with evryone else on this one - this dish delivers much more than the simple recipe suggests and has become a regular in our house. Adding some peppers and or courgette makes the sauce a bit chunkier, and I'll definitely try Monkeyhumbles suggestion of using lemon thyme.

This went down really well, tho' a bit short on sauce - I added some veg stock to make extra sauce to go over mash. I also added a generous amount of spinach to the pot just before serving.

Another wonderful dish! The sauce was rather thick so i added a little frito that i had lurking in the fridge. Also added green pepper which was also hanging around! I used frozen cod and served with new potatoes and steamed veg. Fantastic.

I made this recipe for a light lunch recently. It smelled delicious while it was cooking, my expectations were not met however. I thought the fish and sauce tasted quite bland. This will sound disgusting... but the leftovers of the recipe the next day - reheated - tasted thicker and the sauce was great. I think that I will use fresh fish next time rather than frozen cod fillets.

My Boyf hates fish.. but has finally given in to my nagging and agreed to try it. Made this dish and he was licking the plate. Thumbs up me thinks!

Will definitely be making this again!

This was very quick and easy to make and tasted great. I served it with jacket potatoes, carrots and peas.
