I followed the recipe for the fish and had it with broccoli, green beans and peas. It was ok, more interesting than having the fish on its own but I still found it rather bland. Think adding garlic would improve it

Had the cod with spinach, leek and peas. I just left out a slice of bread overnight which made it hard enough to break into crumbs with a cheese grater :-D Anyway, it was fantastic with the crushed potatoes that had been flavoured with a hint of mustard.

Whatever you do - don't use Tilapia! It is a 'trash' fish that is filled with the bad kind of Omegas -- Omega 6. Look it up: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/866321/tilapia_a_bad_fish_for_heart_health.html

This was really easy and tasty, but made far too many crumbs for the topping. I steamed peas, green beans and spinach to serve and follows the suggestion for the potato side dish - yummy!

I thought this was nice and very quick and easy to make. I agree with Terri and may try with some philli next time.

We really enjoyed this. The lemon flavour really shines through. I completely forgot to use stale bread or to toast it so it wasn't too crispy but delicious nonetheless.
