When I saw this recipe, I thought it might be something fun to try. And it was exactly that, something fun to try. I made everything according to the recipe. The tomatoes and onions tasted kinda bitter from the orange and the fish was very bland. I added some more seasonings before eating (mostly lemon, salt, and pepper) and it ended up tasting ok. It was a fun recipe to try, but I don't think i'll be making it again.
Roasted Cod, Tomatoes, Orange & Onions
From EatingWell: August/September 2005
Assertive Pacific cod has enough flavor to stand up to the citrus-tinged tomatoes and onions. Serve with barley or brown rice to soak up all the delicious juices.

I made this last night and even my fussy teenage daughter loved it (and she hates fish)... now that's a complement!
I served it with brown long grain rice
Surprisingly tasty and satisfying, I omitted the tomatoes only because it is 8 degrees out and I couldn’t find a decent tomato around. I added some mushrooms leftover from a barley and mushroom soup I was making simultaneously…..not a bad replacement. The roasted onions are what make this dish, make sure you carve out the time to properly roast and it will be worth it.
I have been on the look-out for great fish recipes.. and unfortunately, this is not one of them. The orange zest created a very bitter flavor that was overpowering. I sliced pieces of the orange peel and chopped them into small bits as the recipe directed. During roasting, the onions did not stay in quarters and the tomatoes turned to mush. Once I had stirred the veggies a few times I could tell there wasn't going to be much flavor, so I added some orange and lemon juice. I was also sure to spoon the mix on top of the fish as it cooked. I could not tell that it flavored the fish at all.
