  • Roast until tomatoes are juicy and potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven.

  • Rub fish with remaining 1 teaspoon oil, dividing evenly. Season inside and outside of fish with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; stuff with lemon slices. Arrange on top of potatoes, shifting tomatoes alongside. Roast until fish are cooked through, about 20 minutes; serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

You'll want to use a ceramic or glass dish for this recipe; it will conduct heat evenly and, unlike aluminum pans, will not react with the tomatoes' acidity.
