Prep Time: 15 minutes            Cook Time: 25 minutes          Yield: 4 servings       


  • 4 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tbsp. baby capers 
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 3 large orange and yellow bell peppers, sliced
  • 2 jalapeños, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 4 cod filets (~1 lb.)
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • fresh cilantro and lemon wedges to garnish


  1. Heat oven to 425°F.
  2. On a large rimmed baking sheet, gently toss the tomatoes, baby capers, brown sugar, garlic, peppers and jalapeño with 1 tablespoon olive oil, pinch of salt, and pepper. Roast until the tomatoes begin to break down, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. With five minutes remaining, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  4. Season the cod with the remaining salt and add pepper to taste, cook until opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  5. Toss the vegetables with the cilantro and serve with the seared fish. Garnish with cilantro and lemon wedges.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Any white fish can be used in this dish
  • Olives would be a great addition. Add 12 olives to the tomatoes before roasting.
