I would put the potatoes in earlier or slice them more thinly, mine weren't cooked by the time the meal was ready.

Very easy and very tasty, added sweet corn and carrots as well to bulk out.

Wonderful for a quick tea that tastes like you have spent hours creating. Tastes expensive but is reasonably cheap to make. Impress your family and friends with this one.

Very easy and very delicious, a new favourite in our house! I didn't have cayenne or mace but added chopped chilli with the onions and I did thicken it a little more before serving but I guess that's personal taste.

Fantastic recipe, I leave out the mace and cayenne but add a finely chopped chilli with the onions, also some peas and sweet corn with the fish

really lovely, although the sauce wasnt too thick for me at all, I actually ended up adding in a little cornflour to thicken it. Went down a treat though, even my non-seafood loving sister managed a wee bowlful!

Made this for my brother and I for dinner. I can't usually eat rich, creamy dishes but this recipe is lovely. My order for seafood mix with Tesco's with substituted with frozen white fish but it worked just as well. I also used half a small pot of single cream rather than 4 tbsps and I only had dill which worked nicely as a substitute for my missing parsley. YUM, YUM, YUM!

This sounds fantastic. Does it freeze ok?

Hi pollyhammerton, thanks for your question. We would advise not freezing this recipe as the freezing process could mean you end up with a grainy unpleasant texture.
