Sweet tomatoes get cooked until they break down, creating a jammy sweet-and-sour sauce that’s made even better with bacon. Brushing the fish with a lemon-mustard mixture before cooking is an easy way to boost its flavor.
For easier and more precise cuts, freeze raw bacon for 15 minutes before chopping or slicing, which makes it less slippery.

The mustard stuff doesn't all anything, but I like the rest of it a lot.
I make this regularly, substituting good-quality canned diced tomatoes usually because my family does not enjoy the tomato skins when fresh tomatoes are used. I have also made it without the bacon when I didn't have it on hand and it's still very good. There aren't many fish dishes that all 3 kids and my husband like, but this is one!
This was delicious and very simple to prepare. My husband and kids loved it. This one is a keeper!
