Fishing requires patience...

Salt cod in tomatoes

A deliciously simple family favorite

A family favorite everyone can enjoy (including the kids!). The tomatoes temper any extra saltiness from the fish, while the fish provides the entire dish with a punchy flavor that—from the tomatoey sauce to the side dishes—melts on the tongue.
