Very easy, healthy and super-tasty. We had it with mashed cannellini beans and sauteed cherry tomatoes as a 5:2 meal. Seriously recommend.

This dish is AMAZING. Whilst I can follow a recipe and have received compliments for previous recipes, my Partner on this occasion said this dish is restaurant quality. That's not because I'm an amazing cook but down to the recipe and ingredients. Thank you! Will make again!

Super quick and easy to make tastes great too. It’s very mild though I make this for my two year olds and they love it.

Made this tonight, wasn’t enough of a kick for me so I added some chilli powder. Really impressed with the health stats for this. Didn’t have any coriander unfortunately but was great without.

We used ginger powder rather than fresh ginger and whatever fish we had in the freezer - one tuna steak and one smoked haddock fillet. The recipe turned out very nice but would reduce heat whilst everything cooks as chickpeas stuck to the bottom of the pan.

I didn't have ginger to hand but I went for my fave - goes into almost everything - guindilla chilli. These are dried whole chilli pods, orangey-red, 5mm to 12mm long - and HOT! You have to be careful with these guys. You only need an extra 12mm one to achieve a guidillo too far. I had it just right - the occasional tear needing wiping .... Here in Valencia the curry powders available are not very good, even from the spice stalls in the fantastic Mercado Central. I added cumin powder as well and cumin seeds. With the garlic, it tasted like curry - mas o menos. The end result was fab. Lots of thick, hot tomato juice to soak into rice and good flavour from the fish - some misc white fish from the freezer bin in the s/mkt. I will defo add some chunky prawns next time. This cod packs a wallop.

I was only making this for 2 of us so I halved the amount of tomatoes and cod loins but kept the rest of the ingredients the same (ie 1 x tin of chickpeas and a thumbsized piece of fresh ginger, etc). Delicious.

Quick and easy to make. Wanted to try a new fish recipe, the kids chose this one and really enjoyed it. Good mid-week dinner.

Super lovely! I'd add a bit of chilli powder and a little more curry. But all in all it was so easy, cheap and delicious!

Love this recipe! Super easy to make and found it did 6 portions rather then 4 which was a bonus- although maybe my portions are simply smaller.. I added spinach because- well because I had some and I basically add spinach to most dishes to increase vitamin/ veg intake. Also left out fresh coriander (because personally I cannot stand it). Worked well and will definitely make again :)

What spice do you recommend adding to give this dish a little bit more bite? Garam Masala? Turmeric? Cumin?

Thanks for your question. We haven't tested this recipe with additional spices so can't be specific. You could try adding a little heat with a pinch of cayenne or chilli.

Can you use frozen cod? If so does this alter cooking time?

Thanks for your question. We'd suggest defrosting the cod in the fridge and then cooking as above.

Thanks for your question. We think this works better if you don't. On reheating the cod will become overcooked and fall apart. The recipes that are just as good frozen and reheated have a blue star above the nutritional information. Hope that helps in future.

Could I use a different type of bean? I really cannot stand chickpeas. Would haricot / cannellini / butter beans work similarly? Or would I need to adjust cooking times?

Hi there,Yes you can substitute chickpeas for another type of canned bean and it will not affect the cooking time. Enjoy!
