Cod with Stewed Tomatoes for #MothersDay #SundaySupper

cod and stewed tomatoes

Happy Mother’s Day!

This week our Sunday Supper group is celebrating good old (don’t tell her I said that) Mom! Whether you are a Mom, have a Mom, need a Mom or are a Mom-to-be you’re invited! There is something to please everyone.

Thank you Heather from Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks for hosting our celebration! Heather is a special education teacher who loves to read and cook. Stop by and say hello!
I chose a simple recipe that was a regular feature at my house when I was a kid. My Mom made structured meals. Pork chops were served with green beans, corn went with fried chicken and cod or haddock planks (which ever was cheaper) was served with stewed tomatoes. Canned stewed tomatoes.
WAIT!
Before you click away, this is really a good combination.
Cod with fresh, homemade stewed tomatoes and a salad makes it a meal. The acid boost from the tomatoes and balasmic vinegar perks up a sometimes bland fish.

Cod with Stewed Tomatoes

Ingredients

  • 1 lb cod filet
  • 3 large tomatoes, skinned and wedged
  • 1/2 cup celery, diced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions
Place 1 tablespoon olive oil in a baking dish. Arrange cod pieces and lightly coat with olive oil or cooking spray. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes until fish is white and easily flakes.
While fish bakes, blanch and skin tomatoes. If you have never blanched tomatoes, cut a small X in the bottom of a tomato and put it in boiling water for about 10-15 seconds, remove, dunk in cold water and skins should slide right off. If not, repeat.
skinned tomatoes
Fry celery, onion in olive oil until tender.
Add tomatoes, seasoning, simmer for 2-3 minutes to blend flavors.
Serve cod and stewed tomatoes with a salad or side of your choice.

  13. Yum! I actually do think stewed tomatoes and cod sound like a delicious combo…especially with the sweet tang of balsamic added in. I may have to make this for my own kiddos.

    When I first saw stewed tomatoes with cod I really wondered how it would taste. The only stewed tomatoes I’ve had are ones here in the south and they are sweet and/or have cinnamon. I have to say I don’t like the southern version. Yours however sound very tasty and a perfect match for cod.
