Oven Baked Fish with Roasted Tomato slices

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Girl from India

Mediterranean flavours are irresistable!! Fillets of fish in a roasted tomato sauce. I add Indian spices to this one but am posting it with my additions in brackets so that you have the choice of spicy or non-spicy!!

Good and a nice change from the way we usually cook fish. I used cod but I think a milder tasting and thicker fish may work better in this dish. Thanks for sharing!
