Family loved it! I used fresh thyme, double the amount suggested, next time I would add a bit more fresh thyme, 1/4 cup more peas and cook the lentils for less time.
This is good, but a bit boring. I think I would have liked more mustard in the sauce.
The lentils were our favorite part. The fish grew on us after a couple bites. Our sauce did not melt or fall of the fish like some mention in their reviews - couple of thoughts on this. 1 - buy good creme fraiche, cheap won't get you the same flavor or texture. 2 - make your sauce a little on the thicker side to stick to the fish. 3 - add extra capers if you like them!
I made this with lentils and it was a nice different taste and fairly easy. We always love capers.
Topping didn't spread well. This was okay.
The sauce was delicious. Loved it!
