One dish baked fish with veggies is a paleo friendly, gluten-free dinner. Baked cod with potatoes, Brussels sprouts, celery and seasonings makes a healthy hearty meal.
One dish baked 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!
Really though, one dish meals can save you a ton of time in the kitchen and make week night dinners delicious and healthy.
When I cook one dish meals, I focus on making them balanced. This means healthy fats, protein, carbs, and flavor. Hey, good taste has to be included, right? You don’t want a one dish meal without flavor, that would be a waste. Flavoring is KEY to make the whole dish come together.
Now I know what you’re thinking…. baked fish, again? How in the world do you flavor fish along with all the other ingredients in the ONE DISH?
Here’s my one dish baked fish dish trick. —>
Try pairing light fish (like cod or haddock) with a starchy vegetable and then add a more fats by roasting the potatoes in ghee, duck fat, or butter. (optional). Or choose a fatty fish (like salmon) to go with a fruit grain (like wild rice or quinoa) and keep the veggies more green based, like spinach, kale, etc. I use lemon and olive oil to keep the flavor light with more fatty fish.
Both of these styles of fish dishes are great for those looking to refuel after a workout or for growing kids! A good source of omegas, glycogen from the rice/potatoes, and antioxidants from the veggies.
Mmm k. Who’s hungry?
What’s your go to one dish meal? I’d love more ideas!
