Cod Fillets with Basil

My wife made this simple recipe the other day and I was impressed enough to record it here:

  • 1/2 lb. cod fillet
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. dried basil, crushed
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • Dash salt
  • 2 plum tomatoes, cored and cut crosswise into thin slices
  • 2 tsp. grated Parmesan cheese

Pat fish dry and cut into 2 serving pieces. Combine oil and lemon juice in a baking dish. Add fish and turn to coat both sides. Sprinkle with basil, pepper and salt. Overlap tomatoes in even layer on fish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil and bake at 400 degrees, about 10 to 15 minutes or until fish just begins to flake when tested with a fork.
