Sassy Spicy Foil-Baked Fish for One

Super easy, light but super satisfying way to incorporate a nice whitefish fillet, some colorful veggies, and lots and lots of flavor. Feel free to substitute, add, or subtract any of your favorite veggies!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Rinse and dry your fish, and rub each side with some olive oil. Season each side with cajun seasoning.
  3. Place fish in the center of a very long piece of foil on a cookie sheet.
  4. Toss veggies, garlic, pepper flakes, cajun seasoning and remaining olive oil in a bowl until everything is sufficiently coated.
  5. Spread veggie mixture over fish fillet.
  6. Squeeze juice of lemon over veggies and fish. I put the rest of the lemon on top of the mixture while it bakes for extra lemon flavor, but you don't have to.
  7. Fold foil around fish and vegetables so that a packet is formed.
  8. Bake at 450 for 15 minutes.
  9. Open foil, place on plate, and dig in!

Delicious! I made as directed using cod and I served it over brown rice to soak up some of the spicy sauce. Sooooo easy and quick. Oh yes, I baked it at 425 for 15 minutes...perfect. (I did have smaller pieces of cod). Made for Spring PAC 2012 and National Tomato Month -- Diabetic Forum.

I would give this 5 stars, but I didn't follow it exactly. I substituted lemon pepper for lemon and cajun seasoning and mushrooms for yellow squash. I also have a fear of over-cooking fish, so I baked it at 425 for 15 minutes and it came out juicy and delicious! This was a fast and easy recipe that I would definitely make again with whatever vegetables I have in the house.

This was really easy, fast and delicious. I can't wait to make it again. The next time, I'll serve it over rice to soak up the spicy sauce. Thanks for a great mid-week recipe!
