  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red peppers
  • 2 cups Pomi strained tomatoes
  • 3 (7 oz) cod fillets, cut in half


  • In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, tomato paste, garlic, kosher salt, paprika, cumin, coriander, and crushed red peppers to create a paste.
  • Heat a large, heavy skillet (I use a cast-iron skillet) over medium-high heat, 2-3 minutes. Add the paste and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds.
  • Whisk in the strained tomatoes. When the tomatoes start to boil, add the fish fillets, spooning the sauce on top.
  • Cover (use heavy-duty foil if your skillet does not come with a lid), lower the heat to medium, and cook until the fish is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
