What a great recipe and it’s so simple. Used some cod loin that I had bought from dear old Sainsbug's fish counter on spec and frozen and was just fabulous. Served it with Silvana's Mediterranean & basil pasta as recommended and the combination was a winner.

This was really tasty and easy to make, will be doing this again and again. Just not the right quantities of sauce - I made this for two and it was right for us, wouldn't be enough for four. But definitely really good - the thyme is lovely.

Well, to be honest, the resipe was alright, but nothing spectacular. Yet, I have to admit that I'm not a big fun of canned tomatoes in general, so maybe that's why this dish didn't blow my mind. But it's definitely wityh trying!

We really like this! After I make the sauce, I add some sliced mushrooms and zucchini (courgette) and let them cook until they're just about done. Then I add the fish and serve it with rice and a salad.

Lovely quick and healthy meal. I added chopped black olives and a squeeze of lemon and served with new potatoes. The sauce only served two.
