  • 1 red capsicum, sliced
  • 1 yellow capsicum, sliced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 red onion, cut into wedges
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lemon, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

Cooking Instructions
  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 200°C. 

  2. Prepare the Vegetables: In a large bowl, toss the diced kumara, red and yellow capsicums, zucchini, and red onion with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, minced garlic, oregano, paprika, salt, and pepper. Spread the vegetables evenly on a large baking tray.

  3. Bake Vegetables: Roast the vegetables in the preheated oven for 20 minutes until they start to soften.

  4. Season the Tarakihi: Pat the Tarakihi fillets dry with paper towels and season both sides with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  5. Add Fish to Tray: Remove the tray from the oven and make space for the Tarakihi fillets among the vegetables. Drizzle the remaining tablespoon of olive oil over the fish and top with lemon slices.

  6. Bake the Fish: Return the tray to the oven and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes, or until the Tarakihi is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

  7. Serve: Sprinkle the baked fish and vegetables with fresh parsley and serve with extra lemon wedges on the side.
