This is one of the best week-night meals I have ever made. Just excellent. The cod was perfectly flaky, the broth subtle but very flavorful. My only change was I used 4 fresh plum tomatoes instead of strained canned diced tomatoes, and homemade fish stock. I highly recommend this comforting dish with crusty bread to sop up the sauce! Raves all around.

This is a simple, easy and delicious recipe for cod or other mild fish. I used homemade seafood stock instead of the clam juice (which would probably be more salty). I did not drain the diced tomatoes. I used shallots instead of onions and I served it with couscous. My husband said the combination was terrific, "add it to the list" to make again for dinner.

This was outstanding broth. I didn't make the fish, but I will try that next time. Instead, I used the broth for seafood ravioli. Even my particular husband loved it. It was very similar in flavor to a pasta and seafood dish I had at a high end restaurant in the Napa Valley. I will make this again and again!

Wow! Quick, simple AND delicious! A winning combination. Wish I wasn't currently on Phase 1 of South Beach as this would have been fabulous over ANYTHING or with crusty bread to soak up the sauce (didn't think of making Mashed Cauliflower till after the fact). Will definitely make again and again. And wouldn't hesitate to serve to company. Enjoy!

I used flounder instead of cod and this was too fishy for me. Served with rice and garlicky green beans.
