Baked Cod with Tomato Sauce and Olives

Cod fillets on a slate background next to illustrations of the ingredients needed to make baked cod with tomatoes and olives

For a satisfyingly quick blast of Mediterranean flavours, look no further. If you like a little heat then add a chopped chilli with the garlic (preferably a mild variety, since the delicate flavour of the cod won’t stand up to bird’s-eye or scotch bonnet chillies).
