"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."
"Delicious combination. Fresh and unique. I did not have white wine on hand so used a ginger infused green tea with some chicken stock concentrate added to it. Instead of fennel I used Lavender. It was wonderful! I had never used fennel and it was delicious, but a little hard. Maybe I had to cook it longer? The tomatoes were perfect and even a little overcooked. But we loved it and will make it again for friends!"
"French Tart - Unbelievably simple yet delicious recipe. I just made this for Father's Day supper. it is a winner. I cannot wait to try more of your recipes. Thanks ya'll! Judy, Plano, Texas USA"
"I was looking for a perch recipe & ran into this recipe . It was the 1st time hubby & I bought perch. This was absolutely divine. I also added baby spinach. It is now our favorite. And we looooove seafood. Thanks for posting!"
"Excellent!! I used Tilapia and would recommend it. Great flavors and easy to expand and hold for large parties."
"Delicious! And healthy too! I used halibut, and the flavor the aromatic roasted vegetables imparted to it was fabulous. I forgot to add the wine when I added the fish, so I missed out on that layer of flavor, but since I know I'll be making this again I'll get to sample that tasty sauce another reviewer mentioned. Served this with a side of brussels sprouts and it was a perfect meal."
"I made this with snapper and served with plenty of crusty bread and a little ratatouille. Delicious! The fish was beautifully cooked, very moist and tender. I used baby fennel, which I won't do again since turns out to be tougher than regular size fennel. Other than that, a perfect meal."
"Another great recipe from French Tart! We loved the licorice flavour of the fennel with the fish and tomatoes. I used John Dory fillets, and they absorbed all the flavours very well. This is a healthy and tasty way to prepare fish. Thanks!"
"Wonderful combination. I love the flavours of fennel and coriander in this recipe. They give the fish a wonderful taste of freshness and the licorice taste of fennel. The vegetables and the wine make a perfect layer for the fish to cook on. I have used walleye fillets. And they came out wonderful. The soupy sauce with the shallots and tomato juice in it was great. Have enough bread at hand to dip it up. The dish is really easy to make and makes a wonderful light and healthy dinner. Thanks for sharing."
