    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Heat the oil in a large oven-proof frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and gently fry till softened. Add the tomatoes, season with a little salt and pepper, increase heat to medium high and cook until tomatoes have softened, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and simmer for a couple of minutes to let the alcohol evaporate. Stir in fresh herbs and butter. Sauce should be velvety and not too runny.
    2. Add the cod fillets to the pan, season well with salt and pepper. Place the lid on the pan and transfer to the preheated oven.
    3. Cook in the oven for 15 minutes, or till fish flakes easily with a fork.
