Slice the tomatoes, garlic and chop the fresh basil.
Pat dry the cod fillet with a paper towel then coat with some salt and pepper.
Bring a large non-stick skillet to high heat and add the olive oil. Place the cods in the skillet and sear until each side is golden brown. Do not move a lot. Wait until each side cooks well before flipping. You only want to cook half way through.
If your skillet is not oven safe, transfer to a baking dish that is oven safe. Add in the "Other" ingredients to the cod and bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven, cover with foil wrap to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve.
Use a preheated oven.
Make sure to pat the cod dry with a paper towel before seasoning.
While cooking the cod don't move it around too much, allow each side to cook before turning, otherwise the cod might tear.
Use an oven proof skillet, if you don't have one, transfer to an oven safe dish before baking.
Opt for fresh lemon juice, it really does make a difference!
Do not overcook the fish, or it will turn dry and rubbery.
