Tasty, easy meal and felt healthy eating it! I followed some advice below and added a tin of mixed beans to make the dish more filling, also used regular canned tomatoes and 1/4 a teaspoon of sugar as I couldn't get canned cherry toms

so quick and easy to make - I had to use normal chopped toms as can't buy tinned cherry toms at the moment - had it with loads of veg and some new potatoes - stuffed!

I used about 6 grape tomatoes and cut them in two. I salted the fish before adding the breadcrumb topping. I placed a half tomato on each fish and put it in the same time since it wasn't much tomatoes. Left out the green beans since I didn't have any. I had this alongside some potatoes and pinto beans from other recipes. Everything tasted great, but wasn't that filling.

Super dish full of flavour, the tinned cherry tomatoes worked perfectly with pesto crust, just for the hell of it, i served with Dauphinoise potatoes, a combination that worked incredibly well unless calorie counting is an issue.

I’m a bit confused by this recipe. It says use tins of cherry tomatoes - should it say tins of chopped tomatoes or punnets of fresh cherry tomatoes? Or does it actually mean tinned cherry tomatoes? I’ve never heard of these before.

It is possible to buy tins of cherry tomatoes but I’m sure tins of chopped tomatoes would work just as well.

Same problem! I used a tin of chopped tomatoes with a handful of fresh cherry tomatoes.

Absolutely delicious, though not sure how you get to £1.64 per serving as a decent piece of cod will cost at least £3.

Thanks for your question. Yes, you can buy tins of cherry tomatoes - they're available in big supermarkets, alongside the other tinned tomatoes.
