Cooking a bass fish with beetroots
Always great to find new combinations to cook a fish… never thought ever i would cook one with beetroots.
Beetroots were one of those vegetables that my mother was forcing me to eat and i was refusing all the time. How to like them when you are 13 15 year old? They are weird, they leave a red color to your mouth and ….and….they are not meat! Which is basically the only thing i liked when i was young.
How things change huh?
I have to admit at this point that i could have done it better and i have lost my touch a bit. The beetroots should be cut smaller rather than how they are in the pic and the onions the same.
But what the hell, it tasted nice either way. So lets take it from the start.
INGREDIENTS BASH FISH WITH BEETROOTS RECIPE
- 2 bass fish fillets, cleaned without any bones.
- 300gr of beetroots
- 300gr of cherry tomatoes.
- 1 red onion chopped in small sized pieces
- 1 garlic clove
- Around 2-3 teaspoons of Olive Oil
- Salt, Pepper and a small bunch of parsley if we want
Wash the fillets really good. In the middle of a parchment paper piece add each fillet and add the cherry tomatos, onions, and the beetroots which you have previously cut and cleaned. Sprinkle olive oil, salt and pepeer. Close the parchment paper and cook it in the oven for around 30-40 minutes (depending the oven) on 200c.
Serve sprinkling some parsley.
Add wine and good friends.
On second thoughts…skip the friends, more for you 🙂
