Baked Fish and Vegetables
4 fish fillets
4 medium potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes
4 medium carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
salt, pepper, garlic powder and celery seed (to taste)
4 small onions, quartered
4 Tbsp. margarine
On each of four square 9-inch pieces of aluminum foil, place a fish fillet and a portion of potato, carrot and onion. Add 1 tablespoon margarine to each square. Sprinkle with seasonings. Fold foil over and seal edges well. Bake on a cookie sheet at 350° for 45 minutes. This can also be put on the grill. Serves 4
8 canned peach halves, drained
4 Tbsp. walnuts, chopped
4 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/4-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Place peaches cut side up in a greased baking dish. In a bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. Sprinkle over peaches. Bake uncovered at 350° for 20 minutes.
If served as a dessert, it can be topped with ice cream or whipped cream. Makes 4 servings.
Note: If you are out of peaches or just want to try something different, you can use plums or apricots instead.

here is my recipe for fish and vegetables which I do about twice a week.
4 fish fillets (we like basa talapia and pickerel)
dill, salt and pepper to taste.
slice potatoes, carrots, (they cook quicker so fish doesn’t dry out)
a bit of oil
wrap in tin foil or parchment paper and bake at 350 for 1/2 an hour.
sometimes I change the dill to Italian spices and use about 1/8 cup of white wine instead of oil.
Another way to bake fish that is easy quick and gets rid of a lot of the bones.
sometimes a whole fish is less expensive than the prepared ones. But it seems intimidating what do you do with the head and scales.
line a cookie sheet with tin foil. Oil it with oil and spices mixed. Place the entire fish on the pan and put spices into the cavity and more on the top of the fish. Cover with tin foil and bake it until done about 1/2 an hour depending on the size.
When you take the foil off a lot of the skin comes with it so continue to use a small knife and remove all the skin. Take the meat off the bones on that side of the fish and flip it over and do the same on the other side.
The bake bone comes out when you grab it at the tail end so most of the bones are gone in one easy step.
You can do this on a bbq as well or even on shore when you are on a fishing trip. All the discard is in the foil so easy cleanup.
for fillets poaching fish in white wine has wonderful flavour. salt pepper some spice you like and wine to just cover the fish. takes about 5 min from getting it ready. I have also added baby potatoes to the wine just to make it easier. Fish stock can replace the wine or just water with spices. Tastes really good the next day in a salad as well.
I have a husband who fishes and had two boys who loved to fish so I learned the easiest ways I can.
I have some canned peaches and was looking for a new recipe for them, so I know I will be using this one. Yummy.
This sounds really good and healthy. I try to find fish recipes that take away any “fishy” taste so my family will happily eat it. Otherwise, they want their fish battered and fried! Honestly, I would too:) What is it about crunchy, fried, seasoned food that tastes soooo good?????? Just seems really unfair!
a tip from a lady who is married to fishermen who likes fish most of the time.
We like pike which is a strong tasting fish. Most people toss them back because of the strong taste and the amount of bones.
One tip to get rid of the fishy taste is to either soak it in milk for a few hours but if you plan to put the fish into the freezer freeze it in milk.
I use powdered milk so it isn’t as expensive and the skim milk works just as well as whole milk.
Don’t know why it works but it does and people who say they don’t eat fish usually have at least one piece when they are here. I do always have a different meat for non fish eaters but they like the way I serve it.
Even little kids will eat my fish sticks.
Thanks to Grandma for the tips about cooking whole fish :) xx
Barb I had to laugh to read your post about the fried fish.
my eldest son and his dad had gone out before breakfast fishing and came back with quite a few which they filleted. They brought them to me and I said ok we can have fried fish and potatoes for breakfast. My son said “NO mom you have to take them to the store to get them ready” Then he explained that if I took them to the store they would have the batter and then they were good and ready to eat.
He liked the fish sticks. So I made breakfast using pancake batter which was more work but both boys ate the fish.
My youngest still likes to fish and is only now learning to enjoy eating them. They use a lot of fish in China but he doesn’t get to fish much due to pollution in the rivers.
But yes most people love the crispy english style fish and chips even if they don’t really care for fish.
