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.

Nice easy mid week supper, but not as tasty as I would have hoped.

Receipe was nice but you couldnt really taste the fish. This is good for the other half who doesnt really like fish but a bit of a shame for me. Was a little bitter so added extra sugar.

one of the blandest, most flavourless fish dishes ever, wont be making again!!

Fantastic simple and full of flavour I would add a little more seasoning but thats down to individual taste . The only thing I found was that the fish started to break up I had it cut into long rectangles it would hold better in thicker portions to keep its shape . A fantastic dish a real hit with all the family .

Yummy! I used defrosted coley fillets which were good with the sauce. Served with kale and boiled potatoes. Nice and healthy Friday fish dinner!

Fantastic recipe- so tasty, leaves fish really moist. Very simple to make and delicious. Good one to make and put half in the freezer. Or, just freeze sauce to make more quickly in the future. I am going to try this with other white fish in the future. But it has become a firm family favourite very quickly.

Made this last night and was delicious! Good comfort food and will do well for winter nights. I added mushrooms to bulk it up a bit, and used a Herbe de Provence mix instead of just thyme. Also added a clove of garlic to enhance the tomato taste.
