Originally, the name of the recipe is Cod Fish with Garlic and Tomatoes (Merluzzo Fresco Con Aglio E Pomodoro) from my favorite Italian Cookbook by Guiliano Gasali's Kitchen. I used salmon and fresh basil instead of Cod and fresh thyme. Tomatoes should be peeled and seeded, but I added everything.
1 piece fish (cod or salmon)
6 garlic gloves, sliced
1 large tomatoes (2 medium), peeled, seeded, and diced
bunch of fresh thyme (I used basil)
extra-virgin olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper
Place the tomatoes in a bowl. Add the thyme or basil, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Stir gently and allow to marinate for a while. Cut the fish in 4 pieces and sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a pan, heat olive oil and saute garlic for few minutes until fragrant or slightly brown. Add the fish and saute for few minutes. Turn the fish carefully. Cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes. Add the marinated tomatoes and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Serve the fish with the tomatoes around and garlic sliced over the fish.
