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.

Wow super easy & got rave reviews from my family. My Spanish mother in law said I was her 'Masterchef' - still basking in that compliment. Thx for recipe. - 05 Jan 2015


Really light and fresh taste, my wife is not a lover of tomatoes where as I am although she said it was really tasty and would have again my big surprise was how much better fresh tomatoes are over tinned. - 05 Oct 2016
