My husband has been asking me to make fish in tomato sauce for some time. He wanted me to know the canned sardines in tomato sauce that had grown in Ukraine. Of course, this recipe for Cod in Tomato Sauce is much better since it does not come from a can! He accepted. The fish is flaky and juicy and the sauce is legitimate. It can be served hot or cold.

The sauce is slightly spicy and sweet: we modified the sauce portion of this recipe from The New Ukrainian Cookbook. Oh p.s. Have you tried capers? If you haven't, don't be afraid of them. For a long time I thought capers were scary, I'm not sure why, but it kept me from discovering them. They taste like mustard-flavored salted pickles and are a great addition to this dish. You can buy a small jar for $ 1 and something.

pps. I bought the cod at Costco. If you don't have access to cod, I think this recipe would work well with other white fish.
