N ot sure why I didn t write a review on this recipe before. Anyway, as written it is a little too bland for us so added more Italian type seasonings and some hot pepper flakes. One reviewer said that the potatoes had not cooked in time given...................you have to cook them first. Good recipe and can be used with haddock as well.

This was a great recipe for those, like me who are not too crazy about fish. It would have rated higher, but I found the potatoes did not cook properly in the 30 minutes. I had to turn on the broiler to brown them. As it was they were brown on the top and raw underneath. Next time I might parboil the potatoes or put a lid on for the first 20 minutes to steam the potatoes and then taken the lid off to let them brown. I also added 1 tsp dried oregano and 1/4 cup fresh parsley to liven up the tomato sauce. As I did not have tomato paste handy I just left out the vegetable broth and simmered the sauce a little longer. Also used red peppers instead of green, because that was all I had. Despite this, I loved it! I will definitly try this again.
