    French Tart's Note:

    A delectable roasted fish and vegetable dish that is very popular in the South of France, especially Provence. I have listed Perch as the fish to use in this recipe, but Bream, John Dory, Halibut or Tilapia would also work very well. An elegant dinner dish, which needs very little attention, making it the perfect recipe for when you have company! Serve alongside poached or steamed seasonal vegetables, with wild rice or a simple salad.

      I won't rate this since I deviated a fair bit, choosing to use a whole fish and putting all ingredients in together and just roasting for 30 minutes. Turns out I don't really like big chunks of fennel and tomatoes, only little chunks. My DH thought this was wonderful though, so I assure readers, this was just personal taste only. Thank you for sharing.

      This recipe is amazing and really tasty! I made a potato salad as a side dish and it was very filling and delicious. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!

      This is a 5 star keeper. I made this for a romantic dinner with my Valentine. I used cherry tomatoes as they are more flavourful in the middle of winter than larger ones. This recipe is easy, delicious and elegant. I would recommend this as a dinner party main. Thanks so much French Tart.
