salt and pinch of pepper. Spread flour on a plate and dip both sides
of fish lightly in flour.

medium-high heat. Add garlic and immediately add the cod. Cook 4
minutes. Turn fish, cover and continue cooking 3 to 4 minutes more

NOTES : The secret to this sweet, four-ingredient tomato sauce is

Sweet. While the sauce simmers, cook the fish in a large nonstick
skillet. Prep time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 15 minutes Low-fat
