Mid-week meal: Healthy fish & vegetable parcels

One thing that’s on my to-do list is to eat more fish. I love it. Actually we all love it. It would be one of Lacey’s favourite foods. Plus we have a brilliant fish shop just a few minutes walk from our house… so we really need to make more effort. Here’s a super simple recipe I tried over the weekend that will {hopefully} be on our done list at the end of each week…
1 tbs olive oil
4 fillets of thick white fish {we used snapper}
1 small red onion, very thinly sliced
1 large red capsicum, quartered, de-seeded, very thinly sliced
2 zucchini, very finely shredded
60g snow peas, finely shredded
2 tbs olive oil
2 lemons, cut into cheeks or wedges, to serve

♥ Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. When hot add the fish fillets {2 at a time} skin-side up. Cook for 2 minutes or until browned. Transfer to a plate.
♥ Place 4 squares of baking paper onto a flat surface. Place a fish fillet into the centre of each square.
♥ Place onion, capsicum, zucchini and snow peas in a bowl. Toss until well combined. Pile vegetables onto fish fillets.
♥ Drizzle oil over fish and vegetables. {I skipped this part – in the name of healthy eating}. Season with salt and pepper.
Gether baking paper around the fish fillets and secure with kitchen twine. Place parcels onto a baking tray.
♥ Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes or until fish is cooked through. Serve with lemon cheeks.

How often do your family eat fish? Do you have any fish recipe ideas to share?

  1. Oh yummo they look amazing.
    I'll definitely be giving those a whirl. My favourite fish is salmon. I love it grilled with a soy/Ginger marinade, it's delicious.
    Thanks for sharing xx

  2. We have a serious salmon love affair in our household. We grill it with a sauce of balsamic vinegar, brown sugar (just a smidge) so it caramelises and goes all sticky and lime juice. Then serve it up on asparagus, cucumber ribbons and some slices of avocado. Quick, easy and delicious

  3. We are a Salmon family too! baked in the oven, served on jasmine rice with Balsamic vinegar, chilli & olive oil dressing & baked tomatoes. Yummo!!
