Roasted Fish and Veggies with Quinoa and Pine Nuts

Roasted Fish and Veggies with Quinoa and Pine Nuts

Serves 4

This easy, colorful meal is roasted in a parchment-paper-lined pan to avoid the need for added oil. We garnish the finished dish with cilantro and pine nuts, but a combination of basil and almonds or walnuts and parsley would be delicious as well.

  • 1 1/2 cup grape tomatoes
  • 1 red onion, halved and thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 400°F and line a 9x13-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Place carrots, bell pepper, tomatoes, onion, garlic and 1/8 teaspoon salt in the pan and toss. Bake in the top third of the oven until vegetables are tender, about 25 minutes.

Stir vegetables, arrange fish on top and sprinkle with remaining salt, lemon zest and juice and bake until fish is just cooked through, 15 to 20 more minutes. Transfer fish and vegetables to plates or a platter along with the quinoa and sprinkle with cilantro and pine nuts.
