A favourite midweek recipe of mine. Sometimes jazz it up with some fresh veg (broad beans, broccoli, peppers) or a good dash of pepper sauce to give it a kick. Love it with brown rice. reheats well next day, I don't mind if the fish breaks up a bit, I like dinner i can eat with a spoon!

Quick, easy & very tasty. We normally add a pepper to the sauce and serve with brown rice and steamed vegetables. Still not tried with thyme as we have rosemary in the garden and have so far always used this. Like others we also use the same quantity of sauce just for two.

I'm impressed - so tasty and so easy to make! Like split85 I only cooked for two and had plenty of sauce - I would definitely double the quantities for more servings. I served it together with new potatoes and green beans...spot on!

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!

Had it just as the recipe with a chunk of home made (well out the bread maker) bread. Delicious.

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.

Lovely. The whole family enjoyed will make it again.

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.
