Agree with petergill. This is a brilliant recipe if you're doing the 5:2 diet. We have it with stir fried veg instead of any carbs. It's very tasty and when I can't get pak choi, I use broccoli (40 cal/100g raw) or Asparagus 28cal/100g). I have done it with skinless and boneless Basa fillets, 102 cal/100g cooked. Definitely one we repeat on a '2' day.

Light and Lovely. I did it with five fillets, to feed the whole family, and would have added an extra lime and more soya to make sure to have lots of flavour to go with the rice! I also did it with tender stem broccoli instead of Pack Choi (we had Pack Choi the night before) and frozen fillets (only £3) so it took 25 minutes in the oven and was all cooked and delicious :)

Yet another recipe that claims an accurate calorie count but fails to give any indication of the size or weight of the main ingredient (fish fillet); I reckon a typical haddock fillet is 125 - 150 g so the calorie count is 112 - 135 kcal (90 kcal per 100g) (I quite enjoyed the dish, though it cam out a little wet, but really that is too sloppy for a published recipe)

This is a brilliant recipe if you're doing the 5:2 diet. Makes a '2' day feel like a '5' day. I replace the rice with mashed sweet potato (86 calories per 100g).

Had this lovely dish without the spring onion and was still really enjoyable. Did it with rice infused with lemongrass and kaffir lime leaf and really enhanced the dish.

Absolutely delicious! I use sea bass fillets. Am cooking this again tonight and will be serving it with Jamie Olivers' lemon rice recipe. Think I've gone to heaven....................

Thanks for the tip lyndene; I did it with Jamie Oliver's lemon rice on your advice and it went really well. A very light and fresh dish
