    Very good; very flavourful. I will try prawn or scallops next time. I cut the cod into little chunks, then served over rice, with foccacia bread -- a nice meal on this Friday night. I could not find the marinated vegetables called for, so I used an equal amount of marinated artichoke hearts. Thanks!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. I doubled the recipe and used a combination of fish and scallops, substituted marinated artichoke hearts instead of the marinated italian vegetables (I don't like that stuff), and served this over rice for a dinner party. It got RAVE reviews from everyone and several people wanted the recipe! These flavours are AWESOME together and really make this a standout recipe! Thanks for the submission- this is some good food! Plus, it's healthy, too!!! What a great bonus!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. This was excellent! The only changes I made was I didn't have marinated veggies so I used the advice of another and used some canned artichoke and I didn't use cherry tomatoes, but thickly sliced zucchini. My girls are 4 and 7 and they ate this up. Husband claimed to be 'not feeling well' but ended up having seconds. it was more stew-like that I thought it would be, but that didn't change the great flavour.  -  29 Sep 2008
