We love baked fish. It’s so simple and flavorful… and easy to clean up!

The fish can be whatever is freshest at the seafood counter. I often use halibut or cod for this recipe. When my local fishmonger sees me coming, he always knows what I’m going to ask. First freshness, and then price. When available, I love to get it with the skin on.

Truly, this is one of the easiest and fastest dinners to get on the table. When I make this, it takes, perhaps, 30 minutes from start to finish, depending on the thickness of the fish filet.

The vegetables are easy to prep, and I do mix them up with the season, but this is my favorite combination. You will mince some garlic, zest a lemon, and thinly slice a zucchini and small potatoes. Layer them onto a sheet pan, bake, and serve.

It works equally well in a casserole dish too.

Plus, it’s incredibly, wonderfully delicious. At least to me!

One hint. If I’m baking a fish with skin, I often sear it in a nonstick skillet, over medium-high heat, and drizzled with olive oil. I place the skin side down and cook for 2-3 minutes before finishing it in the oven over the veggies.

Hope you enjoy!

  • Author: Stephanie Wilson

Ingredients

  • boneless, skin-on fish fillet (any white fish can be used but my favorite is halibut and larger filets of cod, adjust cooking time depending on the thickness of your fish)
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • Juice 1/2 lemon
  • zucchini, sliced thin
  • bunch of baby spinach
  • 2-3 small gold potatoes (or fingerlings), sliced thin
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • 1 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 4-5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Pinch each sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, or to taste

Instructions

Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat sheet pan (or casserole) with olive oil or nonstick cooking spray.

Place the sliced vegetables on the sheet pan in a thin layer so that they cook quickly. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste, turning to coat the veggies. Then lay the fish filet on top of the veggies, drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Top with garlic, parsley, thyme, and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on the thickness of your filet, or until the veggies are tender and the fish filet flakes easily when tested with a fork. With thinner and smaller cuts of fish, it can bake in as little as 12-15 minutes. If your fish is particularly small, begin baking the veggies first and add the fish toward the end.

Notes

If I’m baking a fish with skin, I often sear it in a nonstick skillet, over medium-high heat, and drizzled with olive oil. I place the skin side down and cook for 2-3 minutes before finishing it in the oven over the veggies.
