Here's a one-dish main course that can be served directly from the dish in which it's baked. You can make the roasted-potato mixture and tomato topping up to an hour ahead. Just cover them with foil and keep warm before finishing the dish. Most any firm white fish will work here - try orange roughy, mahimahi, or amberjack if sea bass isn't avalaible.
