Tried this for the first time and it is absolutely beautiful and so quick and easy! My husband thought it a winner too! Will definitely be doing this again.

We've had this twice now - delicious and easy to do but the fish and especially the potatoes took longer than the instructions said. I still had to cook for longer even when cutting the potatoes into slices. However, with adjustments to the cooking time this is a great recipe. Recommended!

Tasty and quick, ideal for mid week. I baked the fish in the oven while the stew was cooking

Not very tasty and the potatoes needed longer.

Ok but nothing special.

Yeah, nice enough. Smoked paprika has a really strong taste, so if you aren't sure you like it I'd recommend only putting in one teaspoonful.

Loved this recipe so tasty. Added some parsnips as had some in the fridge and used leeks instead of onions. Will cook this again soon.
