nice and simple, thx. just like mother used to make and serve with battered cod filets. i was wondering if we could speed things up by using a good quality mash potatoes mix instead.

Delicious! My husband, an authentic Greek cook, found this recipe a success! Thank you for sharing.

I added one small, cooked and pureed beetroot to it. The blandness is gone, and it has a lovely color!

Yes you can use dried mashed potatoes instead, I did and it works!

Nice, tasty and easy. If you put in less garlic you can also serve it as mashed potatoes :)
