Baked pangasius fillet with vegetables

I’m probably close to becoming a pescetarian because my diet is mostly of sea foods and vegetables.  I still eat poultry, especially turkey, but if sea foods weren’t so expensive in this land-locked country,  I would probably have been a full-pledged pescetarian for sometime now.

This choice of diet doesn’t come with a decision to eat  healthy.  Goodness gracious,  I eat a lot of junk foods like chips and whatnot.  I think my stomach just got lazy and found digesting meat in general so taxing.

Aside from sea foods, I have also been a fan of quick and easy to prepare meals since I learned how to cook.  This recipe,  which is another result of an experiment, is exactly that.

Here it is in a series of photos:


1.  The basic ingredients.  This recipe serves two so just double or triple the ingredients if you’re cooking for more people.


2.  Cut vegetables and mix them in a bowl.  Add 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt  or up to your taste.  Mix well.


3.  Cut pangasius to smaller pieces and sort of sandwich the fish with the mixed vegetables in a  baking dish.  Bake covered with the lid in a pre-heated 180°C  oven  for about 40 minutes.


4.  Serve with basmati rice and fresh vegetables.

Here’s wishing everyone a good meal wherever, whichever part of the world you’re in now!

  1. Dear Marialeila, thank you for sharing this delicious recipe and attractive photo with the world! We are a company from the Netherlands. We are currently promoting the consumption of pangasius and we would love to use your recipe for it! Can we get your permission to use both the recipe and the picture (perhaps without your mark on the picture, but your name mentioned in the hand out)? We would like to print it out on a card and hand it out to people. Please let me know what you think.

    With kind regards,

    Marieke de Haan
