You will need:
- 225gr / 8oz ripe tomatoes
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 crushed garlic clove or 1 tsp garlic granules
- 0.5 tsp sugar
- 2 tbsp fresh herbs such as parsley, rosemary, oregano, whichever you prefer, or 1 tbsp of dried herbs
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 cod steaks or fillets, each weighing 175-225gr / 6-8oz (I used smoked haddock which I prefer but you can really use anything as long as it has the same consistency)
- To skin the tomatoes, use a small knife to make a slit into the skin of each tomato. Put them into a bowl and cover them with boiling water (from the kettle). Leave to stand for 5 minutes, after which you can drain them and the skin will slip off easily. Halve the tomatoes, scoop out the seeds, and finely chop the flesh.
- Combine the chopped tomatoes, oil, garlic, sugar, herbs, and a generous quantity of seasoning.
- Lay the fish in a slightly oiled shallow dish that will fit in the steamer. Spoon the tomato mixture on top. Cover with foil, crimping the edges securely against the sides of the dish. NOTE: My steamer is too small to fit a dish so I just wrapped the fish in foil and put that into the steamer, worked like a charm!
- Steam for about 30 mins until the fish flakes.
Doesnt it look yumm? The fish which is actually barely visible underneath the tomatoes is yellow because I used smoked yellow haddock and it was so good! We have a three-tiered steamer so I steamed some potatoes and zucchini also. Lovely for this boiling hot weather :)
Try it, I know you will love it too!
