Chilean Cod with Tomatoes and Onions Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4


  • 4 cod or scrod fillets (about 8 ounces each)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 4 medium tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 4 slices firm white bread, fried in butter, or 1 pound potatoes, boiled and sliced
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, sliced
  • 1 sweet red pepper, seeded and cut into strips
  • 1/2 cup milk (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
How to cook Chilean Cod with Tomatoes and Onions:
  • Season the cod fillets with salt, pepper, and lemon juice, and set aside.
  • Heat the butter in a skillet, stir in the paprika, add the onion, and saute over moderate heat until it is soft.
  • Add the tomatoes and saute for a few minutes longer.
  • Butter an earthenware casserole and put a layer of the tomato mixture, then the fish, more tomato, the fried bread or potatoes, and more tomato. Repeat until all these ingredients are used up.
  • Or you may have a casserole large enough to hold the fish in a single layer.
  • Top with the sliced hard-boiled eggs and pepper stips.
  • Cover and bake in a preheated moderate 350°F (180°C) oven for 30 minutes.
  • If the dish seems to be drying out during cooking, add up to 1/2 cup milk. This should not be necessary if the tomatoes are fully ripe and juicy.
  • Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
