  • 4 beeline snapper fillets (about 1 lb total)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

For the Roasted Vegetables:

  • 1 cup diced zucchini
  • 1 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Steps to Cook:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. Prepare the beeline snapper:

    • Pat the beeline snapper fillets dry with a paper towel.
    • In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Mix well.
    • Rub the seasoning mixture evenly over the beeline snapper fillets.
  3. Roast the vegetables:

    • In a large baking sheet, toss the diced sweet potatoes, zucchini, and bell pepper with the olive oil, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper until well coated.
    • Spread the vegetables in a single layer on the baking sheet.
    • Roast the vegetables in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until they are tender and lightly browned.
  4. Cook the beeline snapper:

    • While the vegetables are roasting, heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
    • Add the seasoned beeline snapper fillets to the hot skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
  5. Serve the dish:

    • Transfer the roasted vegetables to a serving dish.
    • Place the cooked beeline snapper fillets on top of the vegetables.
    • Serve the dish immediately, with lemon wedges on the side.

Cook’s Note:

  • Beeline snapper is a type of snapper fish that is known for its mild, sweet flavor and firm texture. It’s a great choice for a healthy and delicious meal.
  • To ensure the beeline snapper is cooked through, use a meat thermometer to check that the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C).
  • If you prefer a crispier skin on the beeline snapper, you can sear the fillets in the skillet for an additional 1-2 minutes per side before serving.
  • Feel free to adjust the seasoning to your personal taste preferences.
  • This dish can be served with a side of steamed rice or quinoa for a more complete meal.
