Another simple, yummy recipe for cod. Please feel free to use fresh herbs in place of the dried. I usually sprinkle the top with some fresh parsley. Can also use fresh tomatoes when they are in season.

Ok, so I hate it when people rate a recipe low and then start telling all the things they did differently when making the recipe. This is a little different, since I made some changes and it still came out great. I added some crushed garlic with the other veggies, I added about 2 T of balsamic vinegar with the tomatoes, and I cooked the whole thing on the stove - no need for the oven on a hot summer day. Great alternative to the usual fish recipes.

I have cooked this recipe several times and always comes out perfect. I have used cod, halibut, shark, croaker, gafftop, sand trout and speckled trout. It does not matter, it will come out perfect every time. LOVE IT!!!

Delicious! Was looking for a healthy baked fish that is easy - this is it! Used fresh rock fish and served over rice with a green salad. I microwaved leftovers for lunch the next day which was a great bonus. Thank you so much!
