I found the dish a little bit bland - i think if i cook it again, I will add some hot paprika and maybe some other bits and pieces. It was just missing something.....

Great!! A simple easy quick dish with ingredients I do actually have in the cupboard!! I think I will add some cherry tomatoes during the oven cooking next time for that sweetness; perhaps too much soy sauce (but I did use dark soy). This will become a regular dish for me.

Really enjoyed this for my first attempt at cooking fish. I served it with some boiled potatoes. Next time I think i will cook a little more veg with it as it wasn't very filling. Also cooking fish from frozen took a little longer so the sauce started to reduce a bit too much. I wrote about it here:

Really simple, tasty way to do fish. Used frozen white fillets and the result was delicious.
