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

This was so easy to make, i actually done mine in the oven. I made the sauce then just poured it over the cod in a baking dish and stuck it in the oven for about 10 mins, ooh and i added a splash of lea and perrins to it, delicious and super low fat!!

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.
