Tomatoes and Fish?

Friday evening my mom and I went to Stout Oak Farm in Brentwood, NH for their Annual Heirloom Tomato Tasting and if anyone knows me, knows I love tomatoes! Not just a couple varieties, but all of them. We sampled over 20 different kinds of tomatoes yesterday and voted for our favorite. I picked the Sweet Red 101 and so did my mom.

After tasting everything, I thought about what would go good with the redfish we got from our NH Community Seafood Share were having tonight. I talked with sous chef Keith that works at Blue Moon Evolution in Exeter and asked his opinion on what would be a good choice of tomatoes to go with my fish tonight. He suggested some sweet and some with some acidity. With that in info in hand we choose the green tigers, sweet 101s, sun golds and Matt’s Wild Tomatoes. We also grabbed some organic scallions, zucchini and summer squash to toss in the mix too.
I wasn’t so sure that tomatoes were going to go well with the redfish but, what the heck you’re only a kid once! It ended up tasting amazing! The recipe my mom and I came up with was so easy and simple and cleaning was just a matter of throwing away the foil and washing the baking sheet. I hope you enjoy this recipe and yes, tomatoes do, without a doubt do go with fish!
