Roasted fish with potatoes

roasted fish with potatoes

I’ve been preparing this roasted fish with potatoes for a while, but always for dinner, and I could never make a decent photo to post.Today I finally prepared it for lunch to be able to take a clear picture and be able to share it with you, as it is a dish that we like very much. It is delicate, tasty and… beautiful. Other than being very easy to prepare.

I saw this recipe of roasted fish with potatoes on Leite’s Culinaria site and I admit I didn’t watch quantities that much, because the important are the proportions between ingredients. Today, for example, I didn’t have fresh thyme (what would surely enhance the photo) and I used the dried one.

I avoided also butter. I love it, but when possible, I try to reduce fat (we have eaten and drunk a lot this weekend 😉 ). I assure you this dish is equally good just using extra virgin olive oil.

I prefer to use dried garlic in this recipe. It is much more delicate. I do also vary some details. Today, for example, over the fish I used Flor de Sel with herbs I bought this Summer in Guerande, France. But it is ok to use common salt and some herbs you have at home.
