Do you binge watch cooking shows? I am into watching shows through YOUTUBE.Jump to Recipe
I started watching a bunch of Alison Roman recipes. My Cod in a Tomato Broth is all hers. I am always looking for new ways to cook fish since I get so much through my SITKASALMONSHARES – monthly seafood shipped directly from Sitka, Alaska. The fish is so fresh. It is frozen on the boat. It can’t get any better than that.
The dish is really easy to create. The base of the broth begins with the sautéing garlic and shallots. The garlic and shallots are reserved for the fish topping. Using the reserved oil, the whole tomatoes are added and cooked down. That’s it. Once the broth is developed, the cod is add to poach in the broth. You can really use any white fish in this cooking methodology. Salmon would work too but using the lighter fish will compliment the broth/sauce more. Do check for seasoning in your broth. You will salt and pepper to taste and can add red pepper flakes if you wish to kick up the heat.
I wanted to share a few of my earlier recipes that highlight the versatility of fish and that all are served with a broth.

Cod in a Tomato Broth
Sometimes the simplest dishes are the best. My Cod in a Tomato Broth is easy to create but that does not mean it is short on flavor.
- 2 Lbs Cod
- 3 Whole Shallots sliced
- 6 Cloves Garlic sliced
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 Tbsp Fish sauce
- 28 Ounces Grape tomatoes halved
- 1 Tsp Salt
- 2 Tsp Black pepper
- 1 Tsp Red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper the cod fillets on both sides. Set aside.
Begin by heating the oil in a skillet. Once warm, add the garlic and shallots. Sauté for 3 – 5 minutes. Cook them until they have a nice browning. Remove from the skillet and set aside. Add the tomatoes to the skillet and simmer until they blister and the liquid is released. Once the sauce is a sauce, add in the cod. Simmer for 5 – 7 minutes.
To serve, add the tomato sauce to a bowl and top with cod. Then, top the cod with the sautéed shallots and garlic. Enjoy!
