Simple Roasted Branzino and Vegetables Recipe

I love easy, healthy meals like this one. This simple roasted branzino and vegetables (and brussels too!)- is easy, it’s clean and it’s simple to prepare. This dish is loaded with healthy nutrients, protein and fiber- and will leave you feeling satisfied too. Try to load up on the veggies and have fewer potatoes if you can!

I would recommend buying the fish already off the bone (it’s easier to work with and it’s also tastier to eat I think!). If you want to swap out any of the veggies you’re welcome to do so as well. Enjoy this easy fish and veggies dinner- it’s the perfect way to have an easy meal or kick off a clean eating weekend!

Enjoy!
