Growing up in Israel makes tons of unforgettable weeknight meals with fresh fish and veggies gathering the whole family around the table in minutes. Light meals with whole fish that don’t take much time to put together and yet the smell and taste are beyond rewarding and satisfying. This Branzino Fish is so festive, light, moist, juicy and, flavorful and elegant. Each bite is a dream in your mouth. Best to serve it with creamy mashed potatoes, or the classic yummy French fries. Whichever way you choose, this fish is our go-to when we crave something easy and impressive.
Preheat oven to 450 F.
1). Using a wide pot or baking sheet, lay parchment paper. Place the fish on top and arrange all veggies around in random order.
