The Twelve Posts of Christmas - #7 (2013 Edition)

We really need to decide what we're having for Christmas dinner.  I would eat this - maybe not in two days, but at some point.  We decided on Turkey instead.

Roasted Cod on Large Garlic Croutons
Bon Appetit, June 2008

  • 1 pound plum tomatoes, cored, diced 
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion 
  • 5 anchovy fillets, minced 
  • 3 large garlic cloves (2 minced, 1 halved) 
  • 4 7- to 8-ounce cod fillets or other white fish fillets (such as halibut; about 1 inch thick) 
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided 
  • 4 1/2-inch-thick slices country white bread 
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves 

Preheat oven to 475°F. Combine first 3 ingredients in large bowl. Add minced garlic and stir to blend. Season tomato mixture to taste with salt and pepper.

Arrange fish on rimmed baking sheet. Brush both sides with 2 tablespoons oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast until just opaque in center, about 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat remaining 3 tablespoons oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add tomato mixture. Cook until tomatoes soften and sauce thickens, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

Toast bread; rub 1 side with cut side of halved garlic. Top with tomato sauce, basil leaves, fish, and more sauce.
