Baked reef fish with mixed vegetables is a complete, light and easy to prepare dish. I used a fish from the local reef here in the Maldives , a fish rich in flavor and omega 3, you can easily use a sea bass or sea bream, perfect for those who follow a healthy diet without giving up the taste of a tasty meal.

In this alternative recipe we used mixed vegetables, so with few ingredients and few moves we have prepared a delicious and very nutritious baked fish with vegetables!

Baked reef fish with vegetables

Clean the fish, gut the fish of your choice and rinse it under running water.

1. Remove the scales with a knife, being careful not to apply too much pressure so as not to damage the skin and insert a few lemon slices inside.

2.Clean the pumpkin and cut in wedges of 2 cm thick

3.Clean the potatoes by removing impurities, peel them and cut them into irregular sticks no larger than one centimeter

4. Clean and cut the carrots into irregular slices

5. Wash the courgettes, remove the ends and cut them into irregular slices

6.Cut the garlic in half , cook wrapped separately in a sheet of baking paper with a few drops of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt for about 20 minutes.

7. Take a baking dish, line it with a sheet of parchment paper and lightly grease the bottom with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Place the fish and cover the fish entirely with your vegetables. Start with the some cherry tomatoes cutter in a half so that the fish can absorb the liquids well during cooking. Add the potatoes, carrots and finally the courgettes. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, add chopped parsley, rosemary, salt and pepper. Bake the fish of your choice with vegetables for 20 minutes at 180 degrees . ( Cooking time may vary according to the size of the fish )

Serve with a smile 🙂
