This silky tomato sauce with a touch of cream makes mild-flavored cod sing. Serve with: Farro or rice and a salad of mixed greens.

"As I was making this I was skeptical, but once I added the cream it was delicious! I served this over orzo. The combination of the wine, tomatoes and cream was perfect. Alterations: 1 tsp of corn starch, dash of dried basil after pouring...

Will make again

Added - few tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese to thicken sauce. The true test, will my husband want this again? Yes! Thus is a "keeper"...pun not intended!

Good flavor, easy way to add more fish to your diet
Cod fish with tomato cream sauce

A favorite I will make again and again. So easy and good, and It didn't need the cream.

A great addition to collection of whitefish recipes! Sauce makes the difference!

I used 16 oz. of trader joe's mixed baby heirloom tomatoes (which I also routinely use for homemade pizza instead of sauce!) and it came out great! Make sure to sufficiently season your fish well before cooking. Also I was out of cream so I upped the corn starch to a full teaspoon along with the a little over a quarter cup of regular milk (all I had) and it was delicious. I imagine that the added fat inherent in the cream would make for a yummy mouthfeel but proved unnecessary. A little extra cornstarch is all that's needed to thicken the sauce just enough. Aside from these changes the recipe was followed exactly. Btw, amount of oil is not stated in recipe, so I used about 2 Tblspn worth, HOwever it occurred to me later that modifications in the amount of cooking medium (oil or butter?) could affect the mouthfeel of the sauce in the end. Served over brown rice and with grilled zucchini on the side=delicious meal.

Easy to execute and modify! A tasty one pot meal.

Pros : Easy and fast to make.

Cons: I found this recipe to be quite bland and having never really had cod before, have found that I do not care for it. It is also quite bland.

I read another review where the person substituted chicken stock for the wine, but I feel that it is no longer a fish dish. I don't think I will make this again, but love many of the other recipes I have gotten from this website.

Even my British husband didn't care for it and the Brits eat huge amounts of Cod, albeit they eat it in Fish and Chips.

My substitutions were tasty!

I substituted dill for thyme, chicken stock for white wine and sweet onion for shallot -- the result was delicious! I served this over brown rice.

One pan, quick and easy
