Some great tips in the comments. I par boiled the potatoes and put the onion in later. Next time I would use 2 x onions. Also wrapped the fish in Parma ham. Great suggestion. I roasted longer on a lower heat but the fish was still moist not sty. Will be making this again.

As others have suggested, this is a good basis for a recipe but needs some adjustment. I, for one, think it needs way more garlic. In fact next time I make this I may just chop a small bulb in half and throw the whole thing in. Maybe... Hmmm...

Delicious! Added the onion garlic after the first 15 minutes as other people suggested and it came out beautifully! Definitely a keeper!

Agree that some of the cooking times need to be experimented with. Personally, I prefer to add the garlic & onion a bit later, so they don’t char. Potatoes were on the hard side, but solved this by par-boiling. Made adjustments by - wrapping Cod in Parma ham (keeps the cod moist and adds a nice subtle taste), used small red & white onions, added mushrooms and a red pepper, par-boiled the potatoes & used a dozen cherry/plum tomatoes instead of the large tomatoes . Now a firm favourite.

Decent enough recipe but I agree with MrsLemons that putting the onion and garlic in at the start is too early. I followed the recipe and ended up with them burnt and inedible. The rest of it worked fine.

Great recipe, so quick and easy aswell as affordable with simple easy to find ingredients. I have made it again and again for dinner and the leftovers with some salad make a light lunch. I would recommend covering the roasting dish or baking tray with some tin foil for the first 15/20 mins as I've found the potatoes cook better and seem tastier when I've done this.

Disgusting. The onion over-powers everything and the potato isn't cooked. I'm ashamed to say we ended up getting a take-away.

This is a real favourite in our house. It's super easy to make and reasonably forgiving on the timings. My husband likes the lemons cooked a bit more so I add half for the second 15 minutes with the potatoes. I'm not able to eat onions so I add capers for the last couple of minutes for some extra flavour as well.

Really fresh tasting - it has become a huge hit in our house and we find ourselves making it again and again. It's so easy too; prep everything at the start and then just add the ingredients to the oven dish as you go along, leaving you time to do other things. However, I would add that, at least with our oven, it's too early to put in the onion and the garlic right away with the potatoes. Instead, I put them in after the first 15 minutes to avoid them getting burned. I also add the fish with the lemon and tomatoes since for us it's not cooked enough if we only put it in for 10 minutes. I serve this with homemade tartar sauce.

Cooking times on point, ingredients listed sufficient, inexpensive and incredibly easy for a beginner in cooking! All in all an excellent dish! One serving tip though: If you are into spicy/intense flavours, you might want to douse your serving portions with a mix of lemon, oil and freshly ground pepper (the latter just half a teaspoon per half cup lemon and a dash of oil) and sprinkle Tabasco on top. It was so delicious I used a little bread as well to scrape all the sauce from the bottom of the plate!! :-)
