  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place grape tomatoes onto a large square of aluminum foil. Drizzle olive oil over tomatoes and top with some chopped garlic, fresh thyme, and salt. Wrap the foil tightly to keep juices inside, set on a baking sheet, and bake in the preheated oven until tomatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Cool slightly.
  3. Meanwhile, lightly coat 1 lb cod with spray oil or extra virgin olive oil. Pour about 2 tbsp of blackened seasoning blend on dry plate and carefully coat each side of the fish with seasoning. (Or use your favorite cajun seasoning, or simply a dusting of smoked paprika.)
  4. Pre-heat a large, flat-bottomed pan over medium high heat, add a drizzle of oil, and cook cod until heated through and flaking at the edges, flipping once halfway through cooking.
  5. In a separate skillet, pan-fry polenta in a small amount of oil, until just browned and heated through. Serve polenta alongside cod, topped with roasted tomatoes.
