For fish and vegetables

1 pound medium red boiling potatoes

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 green or yellow bell peppers, cut into ¼-inch-wide strips

2 medium tomatoes, cut crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices

3 pound of cod fillets, skinned and cut into 6 pieces

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

½ cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

5 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
