What is Corvina? It is similar to sea bass in that it has a firm, yet flaky flesh. Corvina has a mild, sweet flavor. I would highly recommend for those who do not prefer a strong, fishy taste. This recipe for Baked Corvina with Tomatoes is quite similar to my recipe for Cod with Cherry Tomatoes. The use of white wine and citrus forms this incredible sauce while baking. Pair with steamed rice and spinach for one incredible healthy and delicious meal that can be on your dinner table in under thirty minutes.
If you are local to Charlotte, you can find Corvina at The Carolina Meat & Fish Co. Not local? They can ship to you! Can’t find corvina? Feel free to substitute with any flaky, white fish. Cod, snapper, halibut, sole or sea bass would be great alternatives. Plan on a six to eight ounce serving of fish per person.
I kind of failed at taking photos throughout the process of making this dish. Click here to view my short video on Tiktok creating this recipe for Baked Corvina with Tomatoes.
HOW TO MAKE BAKED CORVINA WITH TOMATOES
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously, season both sides of the corvina filets with kosher salt and black pepper. Line the bottom of a baking dish, or cast iron pan with one tablespoon of olive oil. As you know by now, I am in love with using cast iron for almost everything I prepare in my kitchen. This 12″ cast iron pan from Lodge is so versatile. I highly recommend this as a starter.
Place the fish in the pan and coat with just a touch more olive oil. Throw in the halved cherry tomatoes and smashed garlic cloves. Squeeze the orange and lemon juice on top of the fish. Add the capers and drizzle the white wine on top of everything. For a touch of heat, sprinkle on a few crushed red pepper flakes.
Cover with foil and bake for about twenty minutes. Covering the fish with foil with allow it to steam and retain its moistness. As the fish steams, the tomatoes will break down and form this amazing sauce once paired with the wine and citrus.
TO PLATE AND SERVE THE BAKED CORVINA WITH TOMATOES
Easily enough, once the fish is perfectly baked make use of that incredible sauce. Steam up your favorite rice, or for a quick alternative use my favorite microwavable rice from VeeTee. It only takes two minutes, and I swear you will not even notice that it came from a package. Add sautéed spinach and you not only have a quick and easy weeknight meal, but also one that is super healthy and incredibly delicious.

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him. He is known as one of the best skate sharpeners in the world!
Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth!
