Really easy, tasty and light. I added capers, black olives and a drop of white wine too.

The whole family enjoyed this one. I even left out the soy sauce so i could blitz for the baby (we added it afterwards for the rest of us). Served with crispy potatoes, a great way to up the fish quota.

Tried this last week and added a few chopped capers, finely shredded fresh basil leaves and a handful of cherry tomatoes (halved) just at the end of cooking. Served it on a bed of farro & beans - really delicious, filling and healthy; children loved it with rice. Cooking it again tonight .

This is a firm family favourite , absolutely delicious with so little effort , especially good for a weekday dinner. Have tried it with salmon , not bad however it 's much nicer with white fish .

Delicious! Served with rustic kalamata olive bread, flowering broccoli & fine green beans. A great base dish which you can customise!

Really good and easy - followed some one else and used lemon thyme and enough sauce for four when only cooking for two. However a little splash of white wine and plenty of salt and pepper made it very tasty !

Loved this recipe, I usually prefer very intense tomato sauces but this one is delicious. We have tried it with haddock and chicken and it was good with both. We had it with new potatoes crushed with peas from another fish recipe and they went well together. This will be a regular dish for us.

Excellent. We tried this with a tomato and chilli sauce (commercial one) as had no chopped tomatoes. It was lovely! Will definitely cook it again. Foliot
