    Wow! My husband is allergic to shellfish so I used only fish and I agree with Sally to double the ingredients and I also added some freshly chopped basil and flat leaf parsley before serving. My family loved it!!  -  03 May 2011


    This recipe is AMAZING. All of the flavours combine together to create an amazing flavour experience. My only suggestion is to double the recipe for 4 people as the amounts listed were only enough for 2.  -  11 Dec 2009


    Just made this and it was delicious, really flavoursome but simple to make. I used Cod instead of Swordfish as that's what I had but it definitely needs a more robust fish.  -  10 May 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
