This is a simple preparation and can be done with a variety of veggies. My favorite meals are those which are quickly prepared and get ready on their own.
Increase Your Veggie Intake
This is a good way to use left-over vegetables. Just toss them together, add some fish and bake them in the oven. I have tried versions made of brussel sprouts, peppers, tomatoes, squash, eggplant and sweet potatoes. They are all very yummy.
Eat More Fish
Fatty fish such as tuna or salmon is a great source of protein and Omega 3 fatty acids. Tilapia and other white meat types are very lean and all of them can be easily prepped by baking them in the oven.
What You Will Need
Oregano, Garlic powder
5 Mushrooms (or 1 Portabella Mushroom)
1 medium Zucchini
1 medium Potato
1 Tuna Steak
Baking paper and aluminium foil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 C). Line a flat pan with baking paper.
Slice the unpeeled potatoes into rounds, put them into a large plastic container (one with a lid). Add olive oil, salt and pepper. Close lid and toss to combine. Pour potato rounds into a single layer on the baking sheet. Use only 1/2 of the pan, leave the second 1/2 open for the veggies.
Bake for 10-15 minutes.
Prep the fish and veggies while the potatoes bake.
Repeat step 2 with sliced zucchini rounds and mushrooms. Add olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano and garlic. Close lid and toss to combine.
Put the fish in the middle of a large square piece of aluminium foil. Sprinkle with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Wrap foil nicely to keep the steak soaked in the juice.
Get the pan with the potatoes out of the oven and pour the veggies on the remaining side of the pan. Put back into the oven, and place the fish next to it.
Bake potatoes, veggies and fish for another 10-12 minutes.
For an extra twist, you can sprinkle freshly shredded Parmesan on the veggies and potatoes during their last 2-4 min in the oven.
