Try this recipe with inexpensive fresh coley or pouting. They both belong to the cod family but are much cheaper and available in larger supermarkets or fishmongers.

Altered ingredient amounts. I really like this recipe, however I made it for two only halving the ammount of fish and wine. Looking at the ammount of sauce I had per plateful, I would imagine this would be a little dry served with rice if made with one can of tomatoes between four servings. - 28 Sep 2008

Used different ingredients. Absolutely delicious and so quick and easy. I used tilapia fillets, chicken stock and kalamata olives. My husband, who isn't a big fan of fish, loved it. - 21 Jul 2008

Altered ingredient amounts. This is a five star recipe -- with the following changes: add 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, and italian herbs. Served over brown rice. We all agreed, it was delicious! - 21 Jul 2008
