refreshing flavours This was a lovely meal. I roasted the onion orange and thyme for 20 mins then added the tomatoes so that they didn't go mushy. I served it with rice and peas but it would also be lovely if potatoes were roasted with the onions and it was served with a salad. I didn't find the orange bitter at all as suggested in previous reviews. I thought it added a lovely refreshing dimension to the dish. Pros: quick and simple to make
This is the first recipe that I have made from this site. Based on previous reviews I omitted the orange peel and the fish was great. I liked that a previous reviewer added cubed potatoes to the recipe - that would make it a one-pan dish. Bon appetit!
Easy meatless Monday dish Followed the recipe except only needed to cook the tomato onion mixture for 20 minutes then added Italian oil cured pitted olives with the fish. Definitely a keeper Pros: Quick and delicious Cons: NULL
The Family Loved This The tomatoes were very mushy so the next time I will leave them out. I added asparagus which was awesome. I liked the thyme and orange combo very tasty. Maybe I'll add mushrooms too!
New family fanvorite Our family loves cod so I thought I'd give this a try and it is absolutely awesome. The ingredients are so simple but the flavor combination is perfect. Pros: Easy and wonderful flavor with the orange peel.
Interesting blend of flavors When I saw this recipe I thought it might be something fun to try. And it was exactly that something fun to try. I made everything according to the recipe. The tomatoes and onions tasted kinda bitter from the orange and the fish was very bland. I added some more seasonings before eating (mostly lemon salt and pepper) and it ended up tasting ok. It was a fun recipe to try but I don't think i'll be making it again. Pros: healthy Cons: orange can be a bit bitter
Unexpected satisfaction more depth than expected. Surprisingly tasty and satisfying I omitted the tomatoes only because it is 8 degrees out and I couldn't find a decent tomato around. I added some mushrooms leftover from a barley and mushroom soup I was making simultaneously;..not a bad replacement. The roasted onions are what make this dish make sure you carve out the time to properly roast and it will be worth it. Pros: Easy Cons: Must have fresh ingredients and time
Bland The recipe described cod as having "enough flavor to stand up to the citrus-tinged tomatoes and onions.'' I followed it to the T but the cod tasted bland; the onions tomato and orange zest blend couldn't rescue the meal.
Terrible I have been on the look-out for great fish recipes.. and unfortunately this is not one of them. The orange zest created a very bitter flavor that was overpowering. I sliced pieces of the orange peel and chopped them into small bits as the recipe directed. During roasting the onions did not stay in quarters and the tomatoes turned to mush. Once I had stirred the veggies a few times I could tell there wasn't going to be much flavor so I added some orange and lemon juice. I was also sure to spoon the mix on top of the fish as it cooked. I could not tell that it flavored the fish at all.
