If I have any chance of losing weight properly I know I'm going to have to start eating fish. I'm so bored with other stuff, it's driving me off track

I'd like to give meaty, white fish a go first. What sauces do you make to go with this? I'll do it Atkins style, so no worries about cream or cheese. I just have to bypass the flour. I like flavour over spice and feel much better if it's stodgy and comfort food like. I have found a recipe in the latest Waitrose kitchen mag, with haddock, spinache and an egg in the sauce that I will try.

Any ideas will be much appreciated.

Thank you, I'll look into those. I've tried Salmon a few times, in different ways and I'm really not keen. I don't like asian style flavourings either.

I think I'd get on starting off with the white chunky fish as I said. I like the thought of disguising it with a flavoured sauce.

Cod fillets covered with chopped roasted red peppers, feta, garlic, lemon zest, parsley and breadcrumbs & baked in the oven for 20 mins.

Thick cod/haddock fillets, baked in the oven with olive oil, tomatoes and mixed herbs.

You can do them in foil parcels to keep them moist. Will take 10-20 minutes in the oven, depending on the thickness of the fillets.

Top the fillets with ratatouille and cheese and bake for 20 mins.

Bake cod with a little oil and garlic and you could also cut up some potato wedges brush with a little oil and bake in oven also. Voila! low fat fish and chips! Serve with salad!

I have a recipe for a nice Welsh rarebit topping for smoked haddock, or for any chunky white fish. I can't remember how it goes exactly (grated cheddar + egg yolk + bit of flour = mix to paste & slap on top, put in oven... something like that) but very yummy and does disguise the fish taste if you go for an ordinary non-smoked bit of white fish.
