Enjoyed this easy recipe. Used more fish than it said and had no fish seasoning so made my own with some chervil, thyme and parsley from the garden. Will definitely make it again.

A very nice recipe that was pretty easy and went down well with everyone in the family. I used oil and milk instead of egg as my son is allergic to egg. Just one negative - the quantity of fish here is too small. I did just over 300g fish and it was not quite enough for two adults and two young children!

Just cooked this for dinner and really did not like it. Followed the recipe and the coating was not crunchy but dusty and tasteless. We disliked it that much that we left it and made something else. Will not be doing again.

Excellent recipie. I didn't have any polenta but I don't think I really missed it. I added some lemon zest & seasoning to the breadcrumbs & it worked really well.

These really were very easy and very tasty. Didnt have any fish seasoning, so just used salt and pepper which turned out fine. Would make again!
