That is a completely different recipe & a very well known one at that.

All of the household, including my two year old like this, healthy, low calorie and very tasty - recommended!

Tasty and really simple recipe. I added garlic and omitted the soy sauce and sugar. Even my super fussy kids liked it. It made a perfect lunch, served with steamed new potatoes, carrots and brocolli. I prefer origano in tomato sauces, so next time I'm going to use origano instead of thyme, and salmon filets and prawns instead of white fish, which I think are more flavoursome (and healthier!).

Great midweek meal. Added bonus is that the kids absolutely love it too! Very tasty and very quick to make.

Scrumptious and simple dish, which I served for a main for a night in with a friend. Recipe slightly tweaked; additional garlic, handful more of extra thyme and straying from the soy sauce requirement. Not the most spectacular presentation on the plate, perhaps this can be worked on.

Simple and delicious dish for those new to and practising cooking. I also added garlic and avoided the soy sauce. It went down a treat for a Monday evening dinner!

Lost all the flavours when the soy sauce took over, even though I only put 1 tbs in. Disappointing.

Delicious. Added lots of garlic. Will definitely be making again! I do agree it does need just a little bit of doctoring so maybe a few olives next time, and a touch of chilli.

Delicious and simple, though it needed a bit of spicing up. Also difficult to make it look elegant, but will definitely do again.
