Baked White Fish

"This is an herbaceous fish dish, but also has the umami and salt of the soy sauce. It calls for cod, but any meaty white fish will work such as John Dory, swordfish or halibut. If you want to punch up the flavor a bit more, add a hunk of butter or some bacon to the dish. That will really make it sing. We paired this dish with rosé because of it’s herbaceousness and the lightness of the fish. But, it’s not a super light dish. That’s why our suggestions are heavier rosés with high acid."
