"This dish is a quick and easy weeknight dinner that can be served with fresh bread, boiled potatoes, or rice. I love the flavor combination of this dish: The mild cod fillet meets a fruity tomato sauce, salty-sour capers, and bittersweet tarragon. If you can’t find cod fillet, halibut is a good alternative."
