This was a fun, simple twist to making fish wish veggies in a single dish. (single dish optional!) I dedicate this dish to Karen, at Salcianu Elite Gymnastics, who inspired a baked fish over asparagus meal.

Prep List:

  • 4 lb Fish Fillet (any white fish)
  • 1/2 C Butter (Dairy Free option Click here)
  • 1/3 C. Lemon Juice
  • 4 drops doTERRA, Lemon Essential Oil
  • 1/2 C. Flour (Gluten Free Suggestion Click here or this brand Click Here)
  • Dash of Paprika ( I only had smoked paprika, and it was delicious)
  • 4 Tbl. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. Pepper
  • 1/4 C. Fresh Chives or Shallots
  • 3 Tbl. Finely Chopped Garlic
  • 1 Bunch of Asparagus
  • 1 head Cauliflower

Step 1

  • Thaw fish in Cold water.. NOT WARM!  It can potentially cook it.
  • Mix Flour, Paprika, Salt & Pepper to taste in separate bowl
  • Clean & prep Vegtables
    • WASH.. Oh be sure to wash well & Snap off the asparagus ends, or cut ends
    • Wash and cut into bite size pieces.  I just cut the whole head in a checker board patter
  • Turn oven on to 375*

Step 2

  • Warm Sauté pan to med-high heat
  • Add Olive oil to Cast Iron Skillet/cooking skillet that can go directly into over, or plan on baking in separate dish…Just one more dish than I used, it’s ok *wink* 🙂
  • Once oil is warm add Garlic, Chives, Salt & Pepper
    • Saute till garlic is lightly brown
    • Turn heat to LOW

Step 3

  • Add Lemon & Butter to pan. Mix & melt.
  • Turn off heat
  • Add 4 drops doTERRA lemon essential oil (CPTG grade essential a MUST to be edible!)
  • Put all the fish into the Oil, Butter, Lemon, Garlic mixture
  • Remove one at a time & dip in flour dish and coat the fish
  • Place on holding plate

Step 4

  • Toss vegetables into pan with oils, garlic, chives to flavor
  • Pour excess into a bowl to drizzle over fish after placing in skillet/baking pan

Step 5

  • Leave vegetables in bottom of cast iron skillet after pouring out the excess oils
    • or place in your baking dish
  • Place battered fish (fish with flour coating) on top of vegtables
  • Drizzle the Excess oils over fish, to fall down through to the vegetables.
  • Bake in over for 30 min

Step 6

  • Remove from oven using Hot mits & serve onto table

Optional Side:

  • I served this along side Basmatti rice Flavored with a bit of chicken paste, & Salt.
    • 1 1/2 C. Basmatti Rice
    • 1/2 tsp. chicken paste
    • 1/2 tsp salt
      • Put a drizzle of olive oil & salt in pan on Med heat
      • Add Rice and sauce a bit till the rice becomes a solid white and looses it’s see through look
      • Add water & bring to a boil, then add chicken flavor & salt
      • Once at a boil place lid on, turn heat down to low, and cook 15-20 min.

Here’s all that left of dinner.  Ages two years old to thirty six ate is up!


Enjoy your meal that inspires a #happyhealthyjoyfullife
