My grocery store was out of scallions the day I planned on making this. I decided to omit the scallions and thyme and use basil as was suggested. I used Tilapia as my base and served over whole wheat orzo pasta. This was the most delicious meal I think I have ever made!


Very easy dish to make! I've not made this twice and will keep it in rotation. To prevent the brothy-ness I added another 1/2 teaspoon of corn starch. I also used basil once instead of thyme. A good alteration. I added spinach after the sauce was thicker. You could use broth instead of wine and any kind of fish! One tip: I had a few pieces of cod that were thicker then the thinner pieces tasted a bit dryer. I recommend similar size pieces. I served this with couscous and a side salad and it was a hit!

Very tasty and easy dish. I made this with cod and liked the poached result. I would choose petite diced tomatoes and/or puree before adding cream, as another reviewer suggested. My sauce was very brothy, not thick as pictured. I will make it again.


This recipe was perfect, the rice soaked up the sauce and it smelled wonderful.


This was such a great dish. Flavors are subtle and perfect together. Fresh thyme both smelled and tasted great. Served over Israeli couscous with lemon zest and spinach. Looking forward to making this again for my daughter.
