    2. Add oil to frying pan on low heat, Saute the onion and garlic – about 2 mins. Add chillies and chopped tomatoes and reduce over a medium heat - mashing helps if you're impatient.

    Absolutely brilliant recipe. Used tinned tomatoes and was so quick to make and very tasty. Added some pancetta too  -  04 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Cooked as recipe - lots of flavours.  -  03 Sep 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    This was very easy and delicious. I almost made it without prawns but I’m glad I didn’t as they were the best part. Think I may have over-reduced the liquid at the first stage or under seasoned it as the cod was a tiny bit lacking in flavour. I attribute this to my mistakes rather than the recipes though as, as I said, the prawns were outstanding. Guess I just got the sauce on to them better.  -  18 Apr 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
