A bowl with broiled fish fillets topped with grape tomato sauce

Broiled fish topped with a quick garden tomato sauce using summer grape tomatoes, fresh basil and garlic. I served this over orzo for a complete meal.

This simple sauce is also great over pasta or chicken.

  1. Aw man! I made this last night with your broccoli orzo side dish underneath…AMAZING. Just started WW and your site certainly makes it easy to know how to stay healthy and yet be creative! Thanks for helping make the transition delicious!

  2. I love the recipe. Since losing 93 lbs I have needed a way to prepare my Crappie since I don't fry it any longer. I have found now! Thx again.

  3. Made this last night minus the basil because I was out… This was great; both my husband and I enjoyed!!

  4. This was SO good! Made just as directed with tilapia.

  5. Oh my lordy… this tomato topping is AWESOME. I made it last night with fish (I just bought cod, which worked fine and was CHEAP) and today I used the leftovers for a topping on a piece of toasted garlicky bread with some melted parm on top. HOLY SMOKES. IN. LOVE. I added some red pepper flake and just a little white wine with the tomatoes and it is seriously out of this world. Even better the next day! It's thick and delish.

  6. When I cook with fresh grape tomatoes, I make the sauce a little smoother by using a potato masher and smashing the tomatoes. It smooths the sauce a bit and you can also thicken it with tomato paste which will add richness to it. A little sugar will mellow the tartness of the tomatoes if they are too sharp.

  7. Loved the recipe. I made it last night with fresh Jersey grape tomatoes. It was delicious!

  8. I made this tonight and it was delicious!!! I used 4 pieces of Tilapia (1 pound total before cooking) and it reduced the points plus value. I will be making this again! It was so yummy!
    Thanks! Laura

  9. I made this dish last night with tilapia. So yummy! I'd never actually cooked with grape tomates before and I loved the sauce. I will definitely make this again with more tilapia and chicken.

  10. humm… looks good!! fantastic recipe!
    Good job!!

  11. I made this for dinner last night and it was so great! I had fish in the fridge that I was planning on making, then I saw your recipe. I have cherry tomatoes (which worked great) and basil growing in my garden and I'm always looking for new ways to use them. Tasty and simple dish to prepare – thank you!

  12. this is one of my favorite things to do with grape tomatoes. I was sitting here wondering how you get yours to "explode" so fast. I re-read and re-read…then…DUH! "Light bulb moment!" You cut them in HALF!! Mine take forever to explode and now I know why!

    I also like to roast them in the oven 🙂

  13. can't wait to try this…simple and delicious, as always…thanks! Lyn

  14. This reminded me of a comment you made a while back about lightening up Bacalao. That is my favorite dish that my husband's grandmother makes.

    It seems like it's just a lot of veggies (tomatoes, onions, garlic) and the salted cod, so it shouldn't be terribly high in points, but I would *love* to see your delicious spin on it!

  15. Gina,
    I would like to add a small amount of tomato sauce (maybe a 1/2 cup) to the tomatoes. Do you think that would work. I would like the consistency of the sauce to be less chunky. I appreciate the advice. I love your blog.

  16. Hi Gina! I LOVE your site – I think that I've made just about every one of our dinners for the last month or so using your recipes – it's fantastic! One quick question about this one – do you think that I could use salmon or do you think the sauce/fish would compete too much?

  17. How about cherry tomatoes? My garden is overflowing with them!

  18. If you used boneless chicken breast instead of the fish, would that lower (or raise) the points value? Also, can you sub dried basil? Thanks

  19. My basil is in desperate need of a trim, so your timing is perfect — I'm off to the fish market this morning!

  20. Congrats on being at number 1 in Babble. Your blog is a great one and there is so much to learn! I am your new follower!
