Cod with Cherry Tomatoes and Pine Nuts

Today's recipe is ideal for everyday cooks ... quick and easy.

And it takes advantage of fabulous summer fare: cherry tomatoes and fresh basil.

Of course, nowadays, it's not that hard to find fresh basil and tomatoes year-round.

They make the perfect companion to our light, versatile Alaskan cod or halibut ... a great meal for a warm summer evening, or to make a wintry one feel like summer!
