My father really hates seafood. But when he smells the aroma of this dish he wants to try it. .and when he tasted it he wants more. I said to my Dad that I thought he hates seafood but he said that this one is definitely different there’s something special. This dish is really flavorful!. My Dad will love seafood’s now.

This was quiet good enough when I did it the second time without anise. For better result, you can remove anise and add some seasonings and white wine on it.

I thought for a good result when I first made this but it turned out tasteless. There’s something missing in the recipe ingredients in here. I’ll try to make my own version by adding some spicy seasonings to have some twist.

A recipe that made my day for it was very easy to make, my mom loves eating seafood so much add to that this also has vegetables that really made her feel so great! No need to change anything for this was very awesome!

Too salty! I think we should lessen the saltiness of this dish....for we know that seafood is already salty so no need to add more salt into this recipe...

this is the best seafood and vegetable recipe I have ever done. It's light and hearty at the same time.
What I know about pot-au-feu is that: it has low cost cuts of beef, sausage, vegetables, and spices. But this dish is different, it is made up of fish that was added to its ingredients. Pot-au-feu is the quintessence of French family cuisine and it is the most celebrated dish in France (it honors the tables of the rich and poor alike). Anyway, I would like to try this different kind of pot-au-feu, quite interesting!

I don’t like this recipe not just because of the long hours of baking the tomatoes. It is too oily. I was disappointed to see the oil on top of the recipe. It left the pan very greasy.

This is quite a bit different from fish dishes that I made. Vegetables and meat combines with gooey broth and wine that made it all the more appetizing and exquisite. Really special that can only be served on special days!

I am so lucky that I found this site. And truly love this recipe, because I am a vegetarian. I am always looking for new recipes for my family(all of us are vegetarian). I tried and served this recipe to my family -- they really enjoyed the taste. As a matter of fact, I will add this recipe to my weekly menu.
