Pampering4life Healthy Eating Series: Roasted Fish Recipe


Roasted Fish and Veggies with Quinoa and Pine Nuts

Serves 4

This easy, colorful meal is roasted in a parchment-paper-lined pan to avoid the need for added oil. We garnish the finished dish with cilantro and pine nuts, but a combination of basil and almonds or walnuts and parsley would be delicious as well.

Ingredients

2 carrots, cut into 2-inch sticks
1 large yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
1 1/2 cups grape tomatoes
1 red onion, halved and thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
4 (3-ounce) pieces mild white fish fillet such as tilapia, sole or flounder
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 cup quinoa, cooked according to package directions
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts, chopped

Method

Preheat oven to 400°F and line a 9- x 13-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Place carrots, bell pepper, tomatoes, onion, garlic and ⅛ teaspoon salt in the pan and toss. Bake in the top third of the oven until vegetables are tender, about 25 minutes.

Stir vegetables, arrange fish on top and sprinkle with remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt, lemon zest and juice and bake until fish is just cooked through, 15 to 20 more minutes. Transfer fish and vegetables to plates or a platter along with the quinoa and sprinkle with cilantro and pine nuts.

I was Vitamin C deficient and so my doctor told me that I should eat Vitamin C rich foods. These days I've been consuming Acai Berry Juice for it is very good source of Vitamin A, C and E. Your recipe is fabulous. I'll try it at home for sure. Thanks for sharing.
