Tilapia with Sweet Potatoes and Red Peppers

I posted a picture of our dinner from last night on Facebook and had a few messages and comments about wanting the recipie so here it is you guys!

(From the Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers Cookbook)


2 large sweet potatoes

1 large onion

1 large red bell pepper, preferably red

3 tblspoons olive oil

1 tsp dried thyme

1 tblspoon Old Bay seasoning

Tilapia (you can use cod or halibut too...)

4 fish fillets

1 tblspoon olive oil

2 tblspoons lemon juice

2 garlic cloves minced or pressed

1 tblspoon Old Bay seasoning

Preheat the oven to 450. Oil a baking sheet for the veggies and a baking pan for the fish.

Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them in half lengthwise and then crosswise into slices about 1/3" thick. Peel the onion and cut it in half and then into 1/2" slices. Stem and seed the pepper and cut it into 1 1/2" chunks. In a mixing bowl, toss the veggies with the oil and thyme and Old Bay seasoning. Spread on the baking sheet. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the vegetables are tender and browned.

While the veggies roast, place the fish fillets in a single layer in the baking pan. Whisk the oil with the lemon juice, garlic, and Old Bay seasoning and drizzle over the fish.

When the veggies have roasted for about 15 minutes, stir them with a spatula to prevent sticking. Put the pan of fish in the oven and bake until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes per inch of thickness.

So easy, guys. And soooooo good. The seasoning is really easy to find in the baking section at the grocery store. And it makes everything taste awesome. And my house smells like I wanna eat it. Prep time was about 15 minutes. This is a great nice meal in a hurry. Go eat it!
