Made this for me and the missus last night.

It was okay, when cooking the sauce seemed rather bland so ended up adding quite a few extra little bits and pieces (pepper, paprika, etc) to give it a bit more flavour. Also added a bit of rocket at the end (had it knocking around) and that went quite nicely too.

I'll probably use the basis of the recipe again but think there's a few additions and tweaks that I'll need to use to make it right for me.

**Edit** I made it again as had all the bits remaining and this time added some chilli flakes, paprika, pepper, lemon juice, extra chorizo and rocket. The extra kick it had as well as a bit more strength of flavour made it a much nicer dish.

Just cooked this, I doubled the amount of chorizo as suggested in other posts. I agree, it was quick but not my favourite fish recipe, I think if I cooked it again I would change the beans to Butter beans and as suggested by other posts, use something different to cabbage as it could have done with a little longer to cook, but didn't seem to 'go' with the dish anyway.

Cooked for us last night by a friend. We really enjoyed it. Have now added it to my list too :-)

Enjoyed this quick and healthy meal. Made a portion for my fish eating veggie daughter in another pan leaving out the chorizo.

Loved this one...really easy and a great supper. I added about twice as much chorizo and it was the spicy sort too, not the normal one. I also only added half the amount of kale. Served with foccacia and even my husband was chuffed with the result.

This was really tasty even though I was a little dubious as it seems a pretty strange combination of flavours. Had to use white haricot beans as that's about all you can find in France. Will definitely cook this again.

Too much cabbage! Will halve next time. I also added some pimenton and a few chilli flakes to liven it up.
A great week day meal.

This was ok. I used two tins of chopped tomatoes instead of the passata, some chilli and reduced it at the end. There was a lot left over we finished it up afterwards. It was fantastic cold and without the fish. Completely different. Sounds strange, but I will make this again, without the fish and serve at room temperature.

Delicious! Used river cobbler (cheaper option for white fish) and peas instead of cabbage and it was very tasy!

I made the lunch version with bacon instead of chorizo. Took me 20 min. to make and turned lovely :)

Lovely. I used salmon fillets, sliced green beans instead of cabbage and added some chilli flakes when sauce tasted a bit bland. Fish gently poached in sauce was delicious - husband not one for beans but enjoyed this. Extra bonus is its cooked in one pan.

Something seemed to be missing from this dish - almost as if it needed more chilli tho that would have obliterated the taste of the fish. Not a fan of this one at all, & hubby loathed it!

A very fast recipe. My cabbage was raw and the fish started to break. Wasn't my favorite recipe.

I made this last night and we really enjoyed it. I used a bit more chorizo, didn't fancy cabbage with fish so used chard and a couple of chopped courgettes instead as we have a glu of both in the garden. I didn't have canellini beans either so used chick peas which were good. I'm trying to cut carbs so didn't have a side dish but OH had new potatoes. I would have it with brown rice another time. A good, tasty, healthy one-pot.
