    JustJanS's Note:

    Russ found this recipe in a recent New Idea. He made it tonight and figures almost any white or smoked fish would be good in it. It was really delicious-simple flavours that worked well with the beautiful whiting I caught this afternoon.

      Made this for DHs lunches, he has pronounced it divine! He is the only one that likes fish (sorry!), so I like to make something that he can enjoy for lunch when I am at work. The fish was tender and flaked wonderfully (I used hake, frozen, I'm afraid, we can't get fresh here!), I parboiled the potatoes and carrots - ah! I added sliced carrots!, and they cooked to perfection. I happened to have breadcrumbs in the freezer, so used those. Thanks Jan, for a great recipe that DH REALLY thanks you for! Made for 12 Days Of Christmas recipe swap.

      Made it with smoked haddock and it was delicious, especially served with peas and a crusty loaf. Made a hash by tipping the leftovers in a hot frying pan and that was great!
