About the Recipe

When roasted, cherry tomatoes bring flavor and moisture to this great Whitefish recipe. Whitefish is a very mild fish, so adding garlic, tomatoes and basil do a fantastic job bringing the flavor.


  • 1 lb (about 2 x 8-10oz) of John O Foods’ Whitefish fillets

  • 12 -15 garlic cloves, peeled

  • 2 cups of cherry tomatoes

  • 1⁄2 cup loosely packed basil leaves, torn into halves and thirds

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • coarse salt to taste

  • cracked black pepper to taste


Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Step 2: Prepare Cherry Tomato Mixture

Preferably in a dutch oven, combine tomatoes, oil, garlic, salt, pepper and 1/2 the basil. If a dutch oven is unavailable, use a 9x13 pan.

Step 3: Cook mixture ahead

Roast for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, gently stir.

Step 4: Add in the Whitefish

Cut the 8-10oz fillets in half. Nestle fish in dutch oven with tomatoes, place back in oven and continue roasting for 10 minutes longer, or until fish is no longer translucent and tomatoes are just beginning to burst.

Step 5: Serve and Enjoy!!!

Divide fish among serving plates. Add remaining basil to tomatoes to taste.
