Baked Cod with a Tomato Feta Sauce

Easter dinner is meant to be delicious. And this was scrumptious.

Homemade tomato sauce and white fish with white wine, spring salad, and crusty french bread to soak up all that sauce. I've made it before, and even Ali, who doesn't like fish loves this dish. It's a little different every time, but it's always good. I'm planning on using the extra sauce for omelets tomorrow morning. 

 Although the fish turned out pretty well, our french bread turned extra crunchy when left under the broiler too long. This is the aftermath. The bread was legitimately on fire. ON FIRE. Hilarious, smoke detector went off, whole house smelled like burnt bread, and we tossed those bad boys Hunger Games-style. Luckily we had a whole other loaf, which did not get toasted or put in the oven. Funny. Welcome to Cook the Namesake Cooking.

Happy Easter everyone, and enjoy your Sunday mornings. I hope Bunny is good to you, and he makes his rounds. I saw a hawk circling today, so hopefully Bunny made it through the night. 
Happy Easter, and yay for Jesus for resurrecting.  

Baked Cod with a Tomato Feta Sauce
4 (6oz) fillets white fish (cod, tilapia, mahi mahi, halibut, whatever's on sale)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 yellow/sweet onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
chili pepper flakes, to taste
1/4 cup white wine (I used a chardonnay)
1 teaspoon oregano
2 - 2 1/2 pounds fresh tomato, diced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
1/2 cup feta for sauce plus more for topping

  2. In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium high heat.
  3. Add the onion and sauté for 5 -7 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic and chili pepper and sauté until aromatic (roughly 1 minute).
  5. Add wine and simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes.
  6. Add tomatoes and oregano, and simmer covered for 15 minutes, until the sauce thickens.
  7. Remove from heat and add the parsley, dill, and feta. Stir until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. Place the fish in a 13 x 9 pan and pour the sauce over the fish. 
  9. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily and is no longer opaque.
