Tasty, healthy, easy and not very much washing up. The chunky sauce is delicious. This is a winner. Didn't have butter beans so I used cannellini beans, and green olives instead of black. I made it for 2 people, using 1 pepper, 2 onions, 400g cannellini beams and half jar passata. I served it with broccoli and we felt this was enough food without crusty bread, although I do think the bread would be a nice touch. I piled the sauce on top of the fish when it went in the oven and the fish cooked perfectly. Would be easy to prep the veg ahead of time and just bung it in the oven when you get home.

Delicious, quick and easy recipe for a midweek fish supper. Healthy, nutritious meal with no fuss and on the table in no time. Lovely with crusty bread and some lightly steamed brocolli, courgettes or a few green beans.

This was a hit in our house. Added garlic per suggestions and had it with a little mashed potato. Lovely easy midweek meal. Will definitely make again

Absolutely delicious! I didnt have passata to hand so I put a tin of chopped tomatoes in the blender along with the basil then used that instead! We had with sweet potatoes fries and stir fried green beans!

Thumbs up from us two. Very simple to make. I added garlic, fresh thyme and rosemary plus a pinch of Cayenne pepper and slug of white wine. Didn't have any black olives nor fresh basil but it didn't seem to matter although it would have been a finishing touch with the basil. This is a "keeper"

Absolutely love this recipe, although I do give the onions ten minutes in the oven before adding the tomatoes and peppers as we like the onions nice and chunky. This has become a firm family favourite!

Can you do this with frozen cod?

Hey, Esther from the cookery team here! You certainly could, although I'd recommend defrosting the cod first. Thanks for your question!

Great dish, I added garlic and a bit of chilli powder (not too much, just just enough to lift it a bit). Must be eaten with crusty french bread, makes all the difference.
