Fish Fillets

  1. Place fish into baking tray and pour the juice over the fish ensuring that it is well mixed with the marinade.

Vegetable Prep

  1. Add the vegetables to the baking tray, covering the fish. Allowing for an even mixture of colours and flavours.

Whole Dish

  1. Place into the fridge for approximately 1 hr to allow the flavours to infuse. If you are running low on time, you can skip this and place right into the oven.

  2. Cover the tray with foil and place into preheated oven for approximately 45 mins to 1 hr. Making sure that the fish and vegetables are cooked through evenly.

Serve with a side dish of rice or salad for a tangy experience. Enjoy!
