“When I come home tired and don't feel like dirtying a lot of plates but still want a healthy meal this is what I go for. Cod is the fish I use most, but any white fillet works well. You can also roast some whole button mushrooms along with the tomatoes. This is a very filling meal with mashed potatoes or a simple green salad on the side.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lay the fish fillets on a baking tray and brush the tops with a little olive oil.
  2. Coat the tomatoes with the remaining olive oil and lay them cut side down on the tray with the fish.
  3. Sprinkle some black pepper over the fish and bake in a 200C or 400F oven for 25 minutes or until the fish flakes easily. If you use fresh fish, the cooking time should be less, about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Divide the fish and tomatoes between two plates.
  5. Roughly tear the basil leaves and sprinkle over the plate.
