Lemon & Chive Roasted Fish & Vegetables | One Sheet Pan Recipe

I use Sheet Pans, $8, for everything - roasting everything from vegetables to chicken breasts, and baking cookies (obvi.) and scones.  Sometimes I even make an entire dinner on one sheet pan.  This is the easiest and healthiest dinners around - piles of vegetables, filets of fish, squeezes of lemon, sea salt and a drizzle of a simple chive, garlic, lemon and olive oil mixture.  Everything is layered onto a sheet pan, and then it roasts in the oven for about 25-30 minutes.  A delicious sauce accumulates in the bottom of the pan to pour over when serving.  So yummy, fresh and easy.  

I took these photos at dinner time, so the lighting is not great, but you'll get the point : )

I used red potatoes, asparagus, cherry tomatoes and radishes.  Red onion or scallions would have been great additions.

I used Mahi Mahi from Trader Joes - I've been keeping my freezer stocked for nights I don't want to go to the store.  I just put it in a bowl with cool water to defrost.

Layer the fish filets directly over the vegetables.  Then drizzle over lemon, chive, garlic and oil mixture.  Season generously with sea salt.  

Ready for the oven. 

After 25 minutes, the fish is perfectly cooked and the potatoes are tender.

Notice only two pieces of fish - Emma was not interested, though she did try a couple of bites.  She had the vegetables and leftover mac and cheese... : )

Plated up.

I put 1 tablespoon of cream + a splash of white wine in the pan to loosen everything up and stirred around with a spatula.

Then poured directly over.  

Lemon & Chive Roasted
Fish & Vegetables

serves 2-3

4 red potatoes, sliced
1 pound of asparagus, cut
cherry tomatoes, halved
radishes, quartered
2 pieces of fish (Mahi Mahi, used here)
1 lemon, quartered
2 tablespoons of butter
sea salt
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
2 tablespoons of chives, fresh
2 cloves of garlic, sliced
1 tablespoon of cream
splash of white wine or stock (optional)

Pile vegetables on a large sheet pan, $8.  Generously season fish with salt.  Place pieces of fish on top.  Stir together oil, lemon juice, garlic and chives.  Drizzle fish and veggies with  lemon mixture.  Place butter pieces around the pan.

Roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes at 400 degrees until fish is fully cooked.

Plate veggies and fish.  Add cream and wine to the pan to make sauce.  Pour over fish.

Another version of this is the Lemon Roasted Salmon & Vegetables.  It is the same idea, just different veggies and different fish.  This would also be great using chicken.

The Spring Clean Collection | Fresh Spring Wraps, Pitchers, Clear Bottles, Tablets + LePens, Market Totes

As I sit here this morning with the back door wide open, it feels like spring is already officially here. Yesterday's warm afternoon sun made me itch for cleaner, fresher everything. As always, I yearn for simplifying and adding more open space to our home and our routine. I'm ready for afternoons in the backyard, long walks and fresh dinners. I want clean tabletops and cupboards, and freshened, clutter free spaces with essentials only. Essentials including big pitchers of blooming branches and blooms, of course.

Spring Wraps, $16

Market Totes, Set of 3, $15

Why is it so hard to find simple things?  Every market bag I see is cluttered with too many logos, colors, "funny" sayings and brands.  I'm keeping a set of these in my car for groceries, but I've also found that they are useful for so many things - transporting food for a party, toting Emma's things in the car, dropping off a meal for a new mom, and a handy place to stash things (like gloves, hats, socks...?) when hanging on a mudroom peg.
The perfect accessory is the Market Tablet to keep your list in order. 
Set of 3

Dusty Blue Tablecloth

My favorite seasonless linen.  I love this with big bunches of white flowers, or pale yellows.  This size is almost like a runner, it helps to make our big table more cozy.

Flowering White Quince Branches are one of my favorite.

My favorite Wreath Tablets in my favorite Pshades.  The new tablets come in a Tall and Small size.  I keep the Tall at home by my desk and in my kitchen.  The Small size is perfect for tucking in my purse, and keeping by my bedside.  Since the tablets are made with cardstock, they are also perfect for a little note.
Creamy Cardstock, 50 pages
Of course, Le Pens are the perfect accessory.

The Gold Leaf Frames ($8-14), Natural Mats & Botanical Prints have been restocked.

Shop all Botanical Prints, here.

The entire collection of Clear Bottles have also been restocked.   Shop the collection, here >

All of the Kitchen Essentials are also restocked!  Perfect for getting everything freshened and back in order for spring.   Shop Kitchen Essentials, here >

This Week's Menu | Apricot Chicken & Couscous, Steak & Potatoes, Sheet Pan Lemon Salmon & Easy Chicken Pasta

I feel like I'm in a bit of warp zone today.  We were on vacation for a week, then I went on a girls trip over the weekend, and then to a super bowl party last night... it is going to be 60 degrees today, but it is not yet Valentine's Day... Is it Monday?  Is it still winter?  Is anyone else feeling out of sorts?  I'm happy to have this morning to get myself re-centered for back-to-real-life and mom duties.  

I love the downtime of winter (and usually need it after the holidays), but this year I feel like I've kept myself running too hard and not had the time to slow down.  So, I'm going to give myself a break this month and really try to keep the calendar free of obligations.  I'm going to make an effort to let time stand still for a while this week to spend some time inside, bake some valentines cookies, take winter walks and begin some cleaning projects that always help me feel re-organized.

I'm also making an effort to begin eating a little bit lighter.  We've had many months of slow simmered ragu and piles of pasta dinners, so I'm starting to lean into a lighter and fresher feeling.  Probably a result of having to wear a bathing suit in January... when I've only been used to layers of turtle necks and puffer vests : )

Here is what I'm planning for the week : 

Apricot Glazed Chicken with the Most Amazing Couscous

I like to make this at the beginning of the week because it makes a great leftovers lunch.

Steak & Baked Potatoes

Sorry, did I say healthy?  I know this does't really look that healthy, but with a smaller portion of the steak, and maybe roasted broccoli instead of baked potato, it will be balanced.  I will not skip the mushrooms and wine sauce, though!

Sheet Pan Roasted Salmon & Vegetables

I love Sheet Pan recipes.  Everything goes on one pan, then in the oven.  A sauce from the lemons and olive oil developed naturally in the pan and can be poured over when serving.  So good, fresh, and flavorful.

*Essential Sheet Pans have been restocked.

Penne Pasta with Grilled Chicken

This is the sort of pasta that I create out of what we have leftover.  Maybe I pull frozen shrimp out of the freezer if we don't have chicken, and maybe I use peas instead of spinach?  It is something easy to throw together on a Thursday night... without having to go to the store.   I'll make an effort to make it 50% veggies and protein and 50% pasta to make it somewhat nutritional.

The Sweetest Sale Continues!  Please note, tomorrow is the last day to order Valentines products.
