Cod with Herbed Tomato Caper Compote

Cod with Herbed Tomato-Caper Compote

I love this “America’s Test Kitchen” cookbook that I bought recently. All the recipes I’ve tried so far were delicious and easy to follow.  This fish recipe is no exception; it is one of those dishes that have been enjoyed by my family. The fish was simmered and cooked over a bed of chopped tomatoes and fresh herbs, resulting in a dish that was full of intense flavor. It was a light and refreshing meal to have on a hot summer day like we are having here in Vancouver. :D
