DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375º.
  • Place fillets in a baking dish.
  • Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Layer vegetables over fish, and add wine if using.
  • Season veggies with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cover baking dish tightly with foil.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork, and veggies are tender.
  • Another way to do this is to pan fry the fish in a little olive oil, sautee the vegetables until tender and spoon the sauce over the fish.
  • I just think that the oven is easier.
  • Garnish with fresh chopped parsley.
