In a wide skillet or pot over medium heat, sauté chopped onion in olive oil until it turns golden brown in color and begins to caramelize, about 7 minutes. Stir in balsamic vinegar and let evaporate. Stir in honey and soy sauce. Let cook 1 minute.
Pour in tomato sauce and stir to combine. Add in a few sprigs of thyme and bring to a gentle boil. Slip cod into the sauce, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and let cook about 7 minutes until cooked through yet tender and flaky.
Remove cod to serving platter and spoon sauce over. Top with chopped parsley.
