Tips/Hints:

This is an adapted recipe from Full Steam Ahead (where it's part of a yummy looking, but more fiddly than I'm ever going to do for a bog standard family meal recipe).  I see no reason why potatoes couldn't be cooked at the same time in the basket, similar to baf's Award winning recipe.  I'm going to give it a try, and I'll report back.  If you try it before me, please let us know how it went  :)
As my picture shows, I've suddenly become younger :-)  DD was of the opinion that her picture should be here, not mine!

This one really would work for chicken fillets Caroline. I think like you, the one in the FSA book is a little posh for everyday eating but would be great for visitors.

Made this - very tasty - but the sauce is a bit runny for my liking.  What do you suggest I do to thicken it up a bit.

I just thicken my sauces with a bit of cornflour mixed with water Shrinu.  A lot of the recipes in the books have very thin sauces and I always thicken them.  Welcome to the forum, perhaps you could go to Introduce Yourself and tell us a bit about yourself, where you are from, how long you've had your TMX etc.

Has anyone tried this with tinned mangoes? If you have would you recommend it? Or should I wait til mango season? :-\

abstar, the mango gets blitzed at the end anyway so I can't see why you couldn't used tinned.  You can get frozen mango cheeks these days too.

I make this very often but took the green pepper to mean green peppercorns as the quantity is so small. I also found the sauce thin and I reduced the liquid quantity. The original recipe is actually much simpler than it looks - especially if you get the fishmonger to trim and slice the fillets for you. Quite delicious and an easy dinner party recipe.
