Roasted Tilapia, Asparagus and Potatoes

Another fish meal, quite reminiscent of last week's meal:

I'm really loving this whole roasting thing I've been doing lately. Saves on pots and pans and doesn't involve me standing over the stove. Throw everything in the oven and walk away. And since everything cooks at the same temperature, it's just a matter of timing everything so it comes together.

Since the potatoes take the longest to cook I put them in the 400 degree oven first. I cut the potatoes into large pieces, tossed them with oil, salt and pepper, and let the oven do all the work. SP said the potatoes were perfect.

I seasoned the fish with salt and pepper and put it in the oven 10 minutes before the potatoes were done. It was perfectly flaky and moist, especially topped with a little lemon juice and some parsley and caper butter. The asparagus, seasoned with oil, salt and pepper, roasted alongside the fish, also for 10 minutes. Simple, tasty, healthy and yummy.
Pin It!


  1. looks amazing, really. I am making roasted potatoes and asparagus with tonight's chicken. easier method indeed.

    you and sp are kicking ass on the eating more fish thing! you've inspired me to make some this next week.

  2. Melissa - We're trying to be good about eating healthier meals at least some of the time. We're actually out of frozen fish and the wholesale club didn't have tilapia when we went yesterday. I was going to buy something else, but nothing was really appealing to either of us. We still have 1 pound of shrimp in the freezer, but that doesn't really count as fish. Oh well....
