Food that is cooked or baked in the oven has been my favorite lately.
I love roasting veggies as it’s easy and result in amazing flavor.
Since I also love roasting fish in the oven rather than cooking it on the stove top, this dish has to be one of the easiest and best recipes to cook fish and veggies together.
The parchment paper pouch creates steam to cook the fish, which is one of the healthiest ways to make fish.
As it bakes in the oven it still give it that roasting flavor!
This is the epitome of healthy and clean eating. Use any type of fish you like with any variety of veggies.
Preheat the Oven to 425F
While the oven is preheating, prepare your veggies. Wash, and cut the carrots, zucchini, and spring onion into matchsticks/strips.
It's best to keep them all equal sized to ensure even cooking.
Here are some other veggie suggestions: Bell pepper, tomatoes (cut into wedges), yellow quash,...pretty much any vegetables your heart desires!
Also, before you touch the fish, cut a lemon into thin rings, you want about 2-3 slices of lemon per fish fillet depending on the size.
Lastly, season each side of the fish with about 1 tsp of salt and freshly ground pepper.
Make the Parchment Pouches
Quick tip: Crumble up your parchment paper then straighten/flatten it out again. This will make it easier to handle.
To make the parchment pouches, place the fish fillet in the large square of parchment paper, add the cut veggies around it, add the slices of lemon on top of the fish then drizzle with about 1 tbsp of olive oil and season everything with a bit more salt and pepper.
Next, fold each side of the parchment paper over, wrapping it like a present!
Place the pouches (folded edge side down) on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes.
Once the fish is done cooked, carefully move the pouches on a plate and open the up.
Squeeze the cooked lemon slices over the fish and veggies and eat immediately!
You can serve with some brown rice, potatoes or just as is!
This dish does not need a carb in my opinion.
Hope you give it try! Leave me a comment below if you like :)
