The beautiful, local produce at the farmer’s market inspired me to create this meal. Who said that during the winter our meals can’t be colorful? There are so many amazing vegetables during this season. They are not only eye-catching but also high in vitamins, minerals, and fiber. It is so good to consume vegetables that are in season. When you eat them at the peak of their ripeness, they contain the most nutrients.

Helpful tips

You don’t have to use the same vegetables as I did. I always create my recipes by looking at what I already have in the fridge and the pantry. Use vegetables that you and your loved ones enjoy eating.

Some of the vegetables in this recipe are not cooked all the way through and that is intentional. I wanted this dish to have different textures. That is why the beets, and the radishes will be slightly crunchy. I actually love to eat them raw, so I enjoy that. If you want your vegetables to be cooked all the way through bake for 20 minutes, then transfer the fillets to a serving dish and continue baking the veggies to the desired doneness.

When I use the zest of a lemon I always buy organic and wash it very well before zesting.

To make this recipe more heart healthy you can substitute the butter with olive oil.

After you bake the fish remove it from the pan immediately because it will overcook.
