Preparation steps

Preheat the oven to 450ºF / 230ºC. Cut four 12-inch / 30 cm squares of aluminum foil and drizzle a small amount of oil over the center of each square.
On a cutting board, using the back of a fork, mash the garlic and 1 teaspoon of salt into a paste. Set aside.
In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the asparagus and saute until bright green but not cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the asparagus to a plate; set aside.
Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the butter to the skillet. When the butter melts, add the garlic paste and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the lemon juice and zest and black pepper; remove from the heat.
Place asparagus and tomatoes in the center of each piece of paper or foil. Spoon half of the garlic-lemon mixture on top of the asparagus and tomatoes. Arrange the cod fillets on top the the vegetables and sprinkle with diced peppers. Drizzle the remaining garlic-lemon mixture over the top.
Fold the edges of the foil up and over the fish and seal to make 4 individual packets. Transfer the packets to a rimmed baking sheet and roast until the fish is cooked through, about 10 minutes per inch of thickness.
Carefully open each packet and, using a spatula, transfer the contents to individual plates. Pour the juices from each packet over each fillet and serve immediately.
