  • 4 chopped sun-dried tomatoes (Optional)

  • ¼ pound cod fillets

  • 1 tablespoon flour, or as needed

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion

  • 4 ounces tomatoes, sliced

  • 4 ounces zucchini, sliced (Optional)

  • 2 ounces creme fraiche

  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary

  • 1 pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste, or as needed


  1. Place sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl and cover with warm water. Soak for 15 minutes. Drain and chop.

  2. Lightly dust cod with flour and season with salt and pepper. Heat butter in a skillet and cook cod until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer cod to a baking dish with a lid.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Add onion to skillet and cook over medium heat until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add drained sun-dried tomatoes, tomatoes, zucchini, creme fraiche, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes. Stir in tomato paste to thicken sauce. Pour mixture over fish in the baking dish and cover.

  5. Bake in preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can also use cream instead of creme fraiche. The sun-dried tomatoes are not essential, but improve the taste.
