Cod in Tomato Sauce

This is a simple fish dish I make for my son who loves fish. Freshly chopped tomato can be substituted for the canned tomato I used here and is even better. This recipe uses very little in terms of spices and its the simplicity that makes for a delicious home cooked meal @sarchakra
