Fish with Steamed Vegetables

The weekends are time to let loose, relax and enjoy meals with family, forget about deep frying and unhealthy snacks, no need to spend all your time cooking or buzz around the kitchen, here is one of my favourite recipes to whip up at the busy weekend… Fish with Steamed Vegetables, I love this recipe for so many reasons, it’s healthy, filled with flavour, light, satisfying and really easy to make.


So how to make that? First you need to marinate the fish fillets In the mixture of spices, garlic and lemon juice I’m using here Cod fish fillet boneless and skinless but you can use any fish of your choice, and feel free to change the spices in this recipe to suite your palate; the only reason I use these spices is because I think they taste same like any packaged fish MASALA but not too spicy. If you prefer the store bought ones you can get them from HERE or from any Indian/Pakistani store.
In main-time steam some vegetables for about 15 minutes I used frozen mixed veggies: diced carrots, peas and cauliflower.
