    I wanted to add (but I think you deleted MUMSNET) that you should remove from freezer when your guests arrive. Or if you are going to a bbq just carry it around. It will be kind of part frozen then when you get there but moussey on the edges love Cod

    Made this for my parents, myself and the DCs. Everyone wanted more - it was fantastic. I only had marge so used that instead of butter and it was still lovely.
