Cod With Tomato Wine SaucePrint This
- 1 pound cod filet, 1 inch thick
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small shallot, minced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes
- ¼ cup white wine
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 6 fresh basil leaves sliced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and cherry tomatoes. Let them sit for 2 minutes so that they blister. Stir to turn them over to the other side and let them sit for another 2 minutes so they blister on the other side.
Turn the heat to low. Add the shallots, garlic and basil and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the wine, lemon juice and lemon zest. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until the wine has slightly evaporated.
Cut the cod into 2 pieces. Oil a baking sheet or pan. Add the cod to the pan and top each piece with the tomato mixture. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cod is white and cooked all the way through.
