My husband enjoyed this more than I did but only because I'm not to keen on peppers. It is a very simple dish to prepare and cook. It won't be on my regular meals list but as my husbands asked for it again I'll do it again.

Went down well with hubby & 9 year-old, but fussy 2 year old didn't take to it so much. I used cod and a seafood mix that had prawns, mussels and squid, and I served it with pasta.

Made with basa fillets as I had them in freezer but will try with haddock or cod next time as I found the basa a bit tasteless. Will definitely make again though with cod or haddock as the sauce was delicious.

Nice, but had to add chili for spice and tomato puree to thicken it up a bit as I don't like runny stews, nice overall taste and cheap. Would have again.

Quick, easy and can be modified to your tastes. That's what a great recipe should be and this does not disappoint - oh yeah it's DELICIOUS. You can use fresh and or frozen fish and to prepare really is simple! Great stuff. :)

It wasn't as flavoursome as I'd hoped, despite using fresh chilli and mixed fish. Next time I will try with either white wine as suggested or adding fish stock.

Delicate and delicious - works beautifully as part of healthy eating (although not too much bread!)

I found it a little bit watery, but otherwise great
