Super--- fast. easy and good salt and pepper and herbs do help. I even had to use leftover salsa for the tomatoes with no problem, Feta adds a creamy note and I sprinked it on the individual served portions with homestyle red mashed potatoes as a side

I made the sauce for this, tasted it before slipping the fish in and gave it a good grinding of salt and pepper and a couple of tablepoons of a mix of fresh parsley and basil. All of this and a squeeze of lemon juice made for a delicious and simple dinner thank you.

Also reviewed for ZWT5 Zingo - Cooks w/Dirty Faces team. I thought this was a nice dish as well, although I added some herbs to the sauce, maybe was just my tinned tomatoes but I felt like it needed just a little something. I had far too much sauce for the amount of fish too - so I wish I had taken morgainegeiser's advice and drained the toms first. Or, I should have reserved half of the sauce and used it for something else the next day - even better! Love the tomato/feta combo and the lemon zest. My only sub was sole instead of cod - just what I had, sole is probably not the best choice. Thanks!
