Skillet Cod with Brown-Butter Tomato Sauce

Skillet Cod with Brown-Butter Tomato Sauce on plate.
Brown butter, or what the French call beurre noisette, is enhanced with summer tomatoes and a splash of vermouth for the superlative sauce in this weeknight fish dish.Jenny Huang

In this quick and easy weeknight dish, rich, nutty brown butter is brightened with barely-cooked fresh tomatoes and a splash of vermouth, then spooned over pan-seared cod. Use the sweetest cherry and grape tomatoes you can find, or substitute coarsely chopped heirloom tomatoes or even vine-ripe tomatoes.
