Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Season cod with pepper and place on a baking sheet that has been lined with aluminum foil, skin side down. Bake until firm, about 12-15 minutes and then remove from heat.
  2. While cod is baking, heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and olive and sauté until the tomatoes soften and release some of their liquid, about 8 minutes. Reduce liquid slightly, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in basil and lemon juice. Serve over cod.
  3. Handy Hint: Baking the cod skin-side down ensures that you don't have to use additional fat to keep your fish from sticking to the pan. To remove the skin before serving, simply slip a spatula between the flesh and skin and lift the fish away.
