Made it vegetarian. What a quick and easy recipe! I made it even easier by using a can of seasoned diced tomatoes- just drizzled the fish in olive oil/pepper, topped with the tomatoes, and baked. I had 500g of trout from the fish shop, so one 450g can was plenty. Also, it was cut thinner, so 30 min was a bit too long, will shorten the cooking time by 5-10 min next time. - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. Great recipe! I added 3 cloves garlic and 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning as another suggested using seasoned tomatoes and it was great. I also just went ahead and squeezed that lemon right into my tomato mixture. And, oh yeah, added a diced onion also...so did I invent a new recipe or am I rating the original?? At any rate, the base of the recipe was not my own but I like to tweak everything with lots or garlic and onion. I also didn't know whether to cover with foil or not so I followed my normal baked fish recipe and covered with foil and baked for one hour (my fish was almost 3kg) I peeked in after 45 minutes and found a little more water than I wanted so I uncovered it and it reduced nicely as we eat it with basmati rice and salad so we like a little sauce to put over the rice. I am trying to incorporate more baked fish in our diet and my whole family enjoyed this fish. Thanks! - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. I used coriander instead of parsley. flavour combination of fish with diced tomato & seasoning mixture was good, but the whole thing was a bit too watery for me. - 29 Sep 2008
