  • 2-3 cups small diced peppers
  • 2-3 small filets white fish cod, hallock, orange roughy
  • 1-2 oranges juiced
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp herbs herbes de provence and dill are great


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • .Add the diced vegetables (peppers/onions) to a large baking dish (mine was about 13"x9") to form a 'bed' of vegetables. Add the fish filets on top.
  • Drizzle on the olive oil, orange juice and lemon juice, spreading evenly on top of the fish and in the dish.
  • Sprinkle salt, pepper and herbs on top.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes, or until fish looks cooked through (it should be flakey, but not dry).
  • Let cool for a few minutes (this will let the veggies steam a bit more), then serve with the veggies and rice (if desired). Spoon the sauce on top and enjoy!
