Baked Fish and Roasted Tomatoes

So simple but so flavorful; this is one of my favorite ways to cook fish.

Serves 4


2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil plus extra to grease baking dish

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

4 4 to 6-ounce pieces cod or haddock fillet

2 tablespoons capers in brine, drained

Salt and pepper to taste



Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Place the cherry tomato halves in bowl and toss with the olive oil.

Transfer them to a greased rimmed baking sheet. Bake the tomatoes until they are shriveled and roasted looking. Halfway during the cooking process, pour the vinegar over them and toss evenly. Keep the tomatoes in a single layer if possible.

Meanwhile salt and pepper the fish and place in a single layer in a greased baking dish. Spread the tomatoes over the top of the fish and add the capers.

Bake until the fish flakes, about 8-10 minutes.

    This is so easy and delicious. There is no chance of drying out the fish. It’s even excellent re-heated!
