READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Jakies Mom

In my never-ending quest to get my husband, not a fish fan, to eat what's good for him, I put this recipe together using items from my pantry. Remembering what I had learned from my Italian "super-cook" mother, I came up with this delicious, quick and easy fish recipe. He loved it! This might even convert a couple of fish-haters.

This is a great recipe for cod or any thick fish, I couldn't find the diced tomatos ask for so I added 2TB of oil and 4TB of balsomic vinager
