Foodie Friday: Baked Cajun Haddock & Veggies with Sizzlefish

One thing I love about going out to eat is getting seafood. I rarely cook it at home because Nathan doesn’t eat it so it’s a big treat for me. That said, sometimes I just crave a nice piece of fish at home. That’s where Sizzlefish comes in. A few weeks ago, I was sent a beautiful shipment from Sizzlefish that will surely satisfy all of my seafood dreams!

Sizzlefish

Aside from being downright delicious, fish has so many important health benefitsone of the biggest being the Omega-3s that it provides. Straight from the Sizzlefish website:

Think of Omega-3 fats as Nature’s best performance enhancers. They give cardio-pulmonary and anti-inflammatory benefits to athletes, while actually improving long-term health. They can help you manage weight.

In addition, Omega-3s can provide great benefits to athletes such as muscle recovery and joint health. But enough about the health benefits, let’s get to the cooking!

Baked Cajun Haddock & Veggies

Adapted from Half Baked Harvest

Baked Cajun Haddock & Veggies | Barr & Table

Ingredients
– 2 Sizzlefish Haddock filets
– 1 tbsp cajun seasoning
– 1/4 tbsp raw sugar [sub brown sugar]
– 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
– 1/2 tsp black pepper
– 1/4 tsp cayenne
– 1/4 tsp dried thyme
– 1 lb brussels sprouts; halved
– 1 tbsp lite soy sauce [sub tamari for gluten-free]
– 1 red bell peppers; chopped
– 1/2 onion; chopped
– 2 cloves garlic; minced
– 1 14 oz. can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
– EVOO

Directions
Preheat your oven to 425°F. In a small bowl, mix seasonings from cajun through thyme. Place the brussels sprouts on a baking sheet with a drizzle of EVOO and a sprinkling of the seasoning mix and put the baking sheet on the bottom rack of the oven.

In the meantime, heat a large skillet on medium high heat and add 1 tbsp EVOO. Add the pepper and onion to the skillet and saute 5-10 minutes, or until the onions are soft. While that is cooking, coat the haddock filets in the spice mix and place the filets on another lined baking sheet. Place the fish in the oven.

When the veggies are soft, stir in the garlic, and add 1 tbsp soy sauce. Add the diced tomatoes and simmer until almost all the liquid has evaporated. Remove the brussels sprouts from the oven [try not to eat all of them straight from the sheet pan..] and toss them with the rest of the veggies. At this point, the haddock should be fully cooked through; it only takes about 10 minutes! Spoon a scoop of veggies on a plate, place the fish on top, and spoon a little more of the veggies on top.

Serving Suggestions

I served my portion over spiralized beet noodles and Nathan’s [with chicken] over brown rice. It would also be good over pasta, other veggie noodles, or just on its own. Additionally, you could swap out the haddock for another white, flaky fish like Atlantic Cod, Sablefish, Rainbow Trout, or even shrimp!

Yesterday was exhausting and exactly what I needed. I had a bunch of errands to run and needed to drop Nathan at work [hellooo one car!] so I get up extra early to get my workout in. I also had an appointment in the city so I met an old Baltimore coworker for lunch. She moved out here a month before us for a new job but we’ve only been able to meet up a couple of times. We went to Sushirrito for lunch and it was so good! I got the Bonsai Salad and the tuna was amazing but I’ll definitely have to go back and try one of their -rritos!

With all of the running around, I hardly sat down before dinner at 6:30! It’s a good kind of exhaustion, though. Today I start a new gig [details to come!] and I’m really looking forward to it. It should be fun and it’ll get me out of the house and running around more.. more good exhaustion! Anywho, I was a bit MIA last week on the social media scene, but I did happen to catch a ton of great posts to share with you. Enjoy!

It’s official. We have a place to live!! Yesterday I found an apartment in Emeryville and we move in just a couple weeks. Hooray to finally settling in! I’m so excited to have a real kitchen that I can stock up and get cooking again 🙂 I’m also excited to have a new area to explore and learn. It’s such a nice little area and I know we’re really going to enjoy living there. It’s about time I get back to some normal blogging though, huh? 😉
