Roasted Cod with Tomato Cream Sauce YIELDS: 4 / TOTAL TIME: 40 MINS


4 cod fillets (6 to 8 oz. each)

1 head of garlic, cut in half widthwise

3 pt. cherry tomatoes, cut in half

1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

kosher salt & ground black pepper

1/4 c. chopped onion

1/2 c. dry white wine

1/2 c. low-sodium chicken stock

1 tbsp. tomato paste

1/4 c. heavy cream

1/4 c. chopped parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 450° and line sheet pan with parchment paper. Add cod fillets, both garlic halves (with skin on, cut side up), and cherry tomatoes in a single layer, then drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake until fish is opaque and cooked through, 15 minutes, then transfer fish to a plate and cover loosely with foil.

  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium-high heat combine 1 teaspoon oil, onion, white wine, chicken stock and tomato paste, then season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and simmer, 5 minutes.

  3. Squeeze garlic cloves from bulb (the skin should separate easily); add garlic and half of roasted tomatoes to sauce. Bring to a boil again and simmer, 5 more minutes. Turn off heat and insert immersion blender into pot; blend until smooth and stir in heavy cream.

  4. Serve cod with tomato cream sauce and remaining roasted tomatoes. Garnish with parsley.
