I thought this dish was OK; tastey enough but nothing special. I added wholegrain mustard to give it a bit more interesting flavour. Would add lemon zest/juice next time to lighten it, I think.

how can you get away with telling people to cook raw fish for just 5 mins!??????

I tried this recipe last week and it was yummy! I must admit that I did hesitate to put cabbage with smoked fish, however the combination in this recipe works very well; it adds variety to the texture. This dish is certainly being filed in my comfort food category.

Love this recipe. Simple and hearty and quick enough to do after getting home late in the evening. Seemed rather a lot of liquid to add, but worked fine.

Came accross this recipe while looking for a way to use up half a cabbage. I used a tin of salmon and some frozen scallops instead of the haddock and it was absolutely delicious.

I made this last-night and it was brilliant! Next time I will add a glass of White wine before the stock and de-rind half a camebert and chuck it in with the rice. Also I like my risotto really sloppy so gave it 25 mins and 10 mins after putting the fish in, put peas in aswell. Discovered as well it is excellent in the micro the next day for lunch.x

I made this for me and my friend after we'd been for a power walk. It was so warm and tasted delish! Low fat and delicious - what more could you ask for? Highly recommended.

This is a really tasty and easy dish to make. I agree with some of the comments that the fish can take a little longer. My fish took about 10 minutes, not 5 minutes as stated in the recipe. My kids loved it and I would definitely make this dish again. I think next time I'll experiment and add some seafood.
