Preheat oven to 375°

I prefer using a cast iron skillet. It makes everything cook evenly.

Dry cod well before outfit in pan. Can also drizzle with a little oil, garlic and salt beforehand. Place the cod and asparagus in the pan.

Add the onions and chopped tomatoes, cut side down. Drizzle with any remaining oil.

Squeeze the juice from the other ½ lemon over the fish and vegetables. Sprinkle fish and vegetables with fresh rosemary.

Small heirloom potatoes pair great with this dish. Cut in half and mix with olive oil, rosemary and salt. Bake the potatoes first for 25 extra minutes (45-50 minutes total) Bake fish until just begins to flake easily with a fork, about 15 minutes.

Change the oven setting to Broil.

Move the pan so the cod mixture is 3-4 in. from the heat.  Broil until vegetables are lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Both potatoes and fish can be ready at the same time when you put the potatoes in first.
