  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
  2. In a bowl combine the peppers, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil and olive oil and mix well.
  3. Lay four sheets of aluminium foil out on a work surface and place a cod fillet in the centre of each. Divide the tomato mixture evenly between the four fillets, spooning on top of the fish. Drizzle with some lemon juice and season. Place another sheet of foil on top and seal the edges to make a parcel, repeat for the other fillets. Place the parcels on a baking tray.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove from the oven and unwrap the parcels. Spoon onto warmed plates and serve immediately.

Although the taste of the fish is mostly masked by the flavour of the topping, its still a beautiful dish and the fish stays moist and well textured. - 04 Oct 2015
