  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cups sweet onion sliced
  • 1 cup leeks sliced cross-wise
  • 4-6 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans diced tomatoes drained
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried Greek oregano
  • 2 pounds wild cod or haddock
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley finely chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Preheat a wide saute pan over medium-high heat. Add in the olive oil.
  • Add the onions and leeks and saute until soft, about five minutes.
  • Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about one minute.
  • Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, and Greek oregano and cook for an additional five minutes. Remove from heat.
  • If using an oven-safe pan, tuck the fish in between and underneath the tomato and onion mixture. Alternately, place fish in a baking pan and top with the tomato and onion mixture.
  • Bake in the oven for 40-50 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  • Top with the chopped parsley. Serve with feta and crusty bread.


*I normally use two 1-pound slabs of fish, but if you have one large slab, cut the fish in half before placing in the baking pan.
