Quick Cod Fillet with Asparagus

asparagus spears – halved
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
Place the defrosted cod fillet in an oven dish.
Arrange the tomatoes halves on top and around.
Sprinkle with the onion.
Season with salt and pepper.
Drizzle with a generous tablespoon of oil.
Place in the oven for 20 minutes.
In the meantime prepare the asparagus: Pour some boiling water in a frying pan and add the asparagus spear halves. Cook for 5 minutes then drain and reserve.
Use the same pan to heat up one tablespoon of oil.
Add the garlic and after 2 minutes add the breadcrumbs. Stir to allow the breadcrumbs to soak up the flavour. Continue to cook until slightly brown.
Return the asparagus to the pan to cover with the breadcrumbs garlic mixture.
Serve the asparagus with the cooked fish. If liked you can also include saute potatoes which can be prepared within the 20 minutes while the cod is cooking in the oven.
