15 minutes! I left mine in for 40 minutes and it still wasn't cooked. This amount of fish could never cook through in 15 minutes. What a joke. Also it could never fit in a 12 inch pie dish either. There's almost 2 kilos of fish, 5 eggs, leeks, and 6 potatoes mashed for a start. If you're going to impart recipes Marco please get them right. I'm writing this while waiting for it to cook while my dinner guests are twiddling their thumbs. And no, my oven isn't faulty.
