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.

Tassleberry. Next to the ingredients list at the top right of this page, there is an icon which says "Add to binder". Hover over this with your mouse and then left click. A tick will appear on the icon and the message will then say "In your binder".
On the line above, it will then say "you have 1 recipe". Click on this line and you will be able to see your recipe. Good luck!

Someone help me please. How do I save this recipe to my Binder? I've logged on, and it just tells me I have no recipes saved. That's because I don"t know how to. I love this site, but just can't find out how to do this.
Thank you.

I added jersey royals and exchanged the cabbage for spinach, it was delish!!

I have cooked this several times and LOVED it. Recommended it several times to people wanting to cook for friends coming to supper and they loved it too. It's a perfect way to eat fish, and it's easy, healthy and my husband adores it which is always a bonus!

We really disliked this recipe. Looking at the ingredients it seemed like something I'd love but I didn't think the ingredients came well together at all. We struggled to finish the meal and binned the rest...

After the suggestions I used more chorizo than in the recipe and didn't fancy cabbage so added spinach instead, and we all loved this. As fish is no longer a cheap meal it was lovely to get that fishy taste with a kick of tomatoes and chorizo, will definitely try it again!

add more chorizo and some smoked paprika. Great.

I think this is an excellent dish. I to added more chorizo, and a smidge of smoked paprika.

My boyfriend and I thought this was absolutely delicious. So easy to make with simple ingredients but great flavours. We added double the amount of chorizo which was lovely and didn't overpower the other flavours. will be having this again tomorrow!

This was a really quick and easy recipe, although I did cook the sauce for slightly longer thanks to the recommendations.
And definitely worth adding a little more chorizo.

Great recipe - I've made it several times and it always goes down well with everyone.

Quite disappointing; I have looked forward to this all day. Used great ingredients, listened to Radio4 whilst cooking, something just not right. I think I will add the sauce to pan fried cod loin next time.

This was ok, but a little disappointing. There are much better fish recipe's out there. Will probably not do this recipe again.

Just finished scoffing my first effort with this recipe. Even the teenage daughter liked it! Next time I shall use more chorizo to spice it up a bit more, but it was very good as it was.

This was FAB. Used double amount of chorizo replaced cabbage with green pepper and used cod loin. Lovely flavours and lots of juice mopped up with sun dried tomato bread. Now resident in my binder and will DEF make again.

Very disappointed. A dish should taste like more than the sum of its ingredients and this one didn't. Would not make it again.
