Since their arrival from the Americas in the 16th Century, tomatoes have become a Greek favorite. Fish baked in tomatoes and spices and topped with herbs is one of the staple dishes of the Cycladic islands. The savory flavors of the sauce (which includes raisins, a classic Mediterranean ingredient) perfectly complement the light flakiness of cod and a lemony tabbouleh made with bulgur, cucumber and toasted almonds.

Pick the parsley leaves off the stems; discard the stems.

3 Make the tomato sauce:

While the bulgur continues to cook, in a medium pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the garlic, onion and spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Add the diced tomatoes and raisins. Cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, or until thickened; season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
