Hello hello!! Yesterday ended up being a self care day and did not do ANY WORK day! Okay I lied, I did so some. But y’all, it was so needed. I got my hair done and did normal human things. Haha! I also decided it was A okay not to have a a real content calendar during summer months. Yup. Are you cool with that? I mean, I have recipes and content ready to be shared, but I also know that people are taking time off these days and away from computer etc. The last thing I want to do is keep people glued to the computer. I encourage that R&R and getting outside. That’s my plan too! Once I finish the cookbook (one month and counting).
That being said, I’m ALWAYS here via email if ANYONE needs more recipe ideas, questions, etc.
Now, back to today’s post! Honey Mustard Baked Fish with Vegetables! This One Pan Meal is actually a favorite fish dish recipe from almost 3 years ago. I liked it so much fined tuned it! And decided to share the love again. In fact, I’ve been going back fine tuning some of my favorite recipes. Like the turmeric lemonade! Yum, so good! And so refreshing to update those oldie but goodie recipes, ya know?
Anyway, this past weekend I made my favorite one pan fish dish using sizzlefish haddock and cod. The new recipe really simplifies the ingredients, but also makes it more scrumptious! I kid you not.
When I cook one pan meals, I focus on making them balanced. This means healthy fats, protein, carbs, and flavor. Hey, good taste has to be included, right? And when it comes to baked fish and vegetable recipes, you definitely don’t want it to be bland, that would be a waste. Flavoring is KEY to make the whole one pan bake fish meal come together.
Now I know what you’re thinking. … How in the world do you flavor fish along with all the other ingredients in the ONE PAN?
Here’s my baked fish trick. —> Try pairing light fish (like cod or haddock) with a starchy vegetable (Squash or potatoes or carrots) and then pan frying the starchy vegetables in butter or coconut oil/avocado oil first. Keep the other veggies more green based, like spinach, kale, etc. When it comes to the fish marinade or topping, try using a sweeter marinade for light white fish. I used a honey mustard dressing/marinade. If you are cooking with fattier fish, such as salmon, I find just using lemon, garlic, herbs, and olive oil keeps the flavor light. Not too heavy or overpowering.
Moving forward now, here’s what’s new and updated with this Honey Mustard Baked Fish with Vegetables! Note: I updated it on the original post as well. Just so ya know.
For one, we used Honey mustard dressing/marinade to coat the fish. Or you can make your own! Super simple. Just whisking ingredients together honey mustard, red wine vinegar, and some spices. Then pouring it on the fish to marinade a wee bit.
We also pan fried new potatoes in avocado oil. You can use coconut oil or butter as well. You have the option of baking the potatoes in the one pan (versus fry pan) before adding your vegetables and fish. But trust me, the potatoes wont’ be nearly as crispy and tasty. Just my two cents.
Okay, so once we get those new potatoes lightly fried, you just toss together with brussel sprouts shavings, and then your fish Cod, Haddock, or even Tilapia work! Add lemon slices, parmesan (optional but you should so add it!!), and bake it up! IT SMELLS AMAZING!!! And tastes even better.Print
One pan meals. Oh goodness, we love them! I mean, throw everything in a pot or pan, cook, serve, bam! You’re done. And if you’re like us, maybe you make a couple of dishes and save some for the next day? Leftovers for lunch is like GOLD!
Save a ton of time in the kitchen and make week night dinners delicious and healthy. BEST PLAN EVER.
