One of our favorites, made this a dozen times. Lovely with some sugarsnaps on the side. Do use a decent quality harissa, eg Tesco one is not really good.

Delicious! Not the easiest of recipes, and needs some tweaking (less juice and zest, more oven time) but still went down really well.

I found the mash far too sweet and the fish seemed to be overpowered by everything else

This was also by far the worst recipe I've tried from GF! Just wish I'd read the reviews beforehand like I usually do... Too mushy, no textures, like mentioned before the lemon was too much and so was the ginger and the fish was under cooked! Needs work!

this is so simple and so tasty, made more of the harrisa butter and used that to mix in with the mash along side the ginger

Absolutely delicious! I only used half a lemon and omitted the garlic but loved the sweet potato with ginger. Easy to make dairy free - I used a DF spread instead of butter with no problems, and a splash of olive oil in the potato to mash it. Used a heaped tsp of harissa to give it a real kick. Will be making again!

My sister made this on New Years Eve as the fish course for a five course gourmet dinner we did together.
It was delicious.

This was delicious made it with pollack. Left out the coriander as my partner does not like it but will make sure I add it to mine next time as I think it will taste even better

This was a very tasty recipe, we especially liked the ginger mash but I have to admit to adding just a bit more ginger than the recipe states (and also some butter) - yum!

I really liked this, and so did my partner. It was a lovely blend of flavours, and gently spiced. I might try a little more harissa next time, I used three-quarters of a teaspoon. Perfect.

This was gorgeous - a real winter warmer. The fish was perfect.
I cooked this for 5 people but just used one lemon and half the ginger but added a few pinches of cinnamon to the potatoes and a little butter.

This was by far the worst recipe I've ever cooked from Good Food. The butter was bitter from too much lemon rind, The fish was not cooked and required a lot longer in the oven, and despite the ginger the mash was bland. Sorry!

I used Barts Harissa as it is cheaper. It was a very simple but very tasty dish and I swear by the frozen 'ice cube' style herbs including ginger available from sainsbury's. My husband really liked the dish.
