Baked Cod with Caramelized Onions and Cherry Tomatoes-Baccalà al Forno

It's not possible that summer is almost halfway over! I have to stay positive and focus on the rest of the hot and humid summer days and keep making fresh dishes like this baked cod with caramelized onions and cherry tomatoes.



I would eat fish more than once a week if my family wasn't such big pasta and chicken fans. I have my stand-by salmon dishes and then there are the stand-by white fish dishes (like this cod dish!!). You have to try this cod. If you aren't a big fan of fish in general, this dish may be the game changer for your weeknight dinner recipe. I swear it is really so easy to put together and you doesn't break out that much of a sweat. If you are opposed to turning on the oven, I suppose you could even bake it in a grill safe casserole on the grill (or even in a cast iron grill).

I'm not that much of a grill master, so I will suffer with 20 minutes of a little heat in the kitchen when the results are this delightful! My kids just love the flavors and I really think it's the caramelized onions and the lemon juice that make this fish dish possibly the most perfect summer dinner.
Super easy to put together!! You just have to prep the panko topping and set aside. Next up is to caramelize the onions while the oven is heating up. I lined my casserole with aluminum foil. You then layer on the onions and layer on the fish. Drizzle on a little olive oil and salt and pepper to the fish. Toss on the panko topping and the cherry tomatoes and pop in the oven and wait for the magic to happen.
