Tilapia, broccoli, asparagus, zucchini, and carrots all baked in one pan in under 20 minutes. This quick sheet pan dinner is healthy and loaded with the flavors of garlic and spices.One pan dinners have become a must around here. Who has time to make multiple dishes and spend all day preparing dinner? This flavorful tilapia and veggie sheet pan dinner is a must try. It’s packed with garlic, olive oil, and spices and comes together in just a few minutes and bakes very fast too.
Frozen or fresh tilapia works but the tilapia must be defrosted before baking. For the veggies, I used broccoli, asparagus, zucchini and baby carrots but any other veggies such as onion, tomatoes, thinly sliced sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts or par-boiled potatoes will also work.
This tasty mix of fish and veggies is great for meal prepping too! To meal prep, the fish and veggies, cook 1 cup of your favorite rice according to package directions then divide it into 4 meal prep containers. Top the rice with veggies and enjoy this tasty meal all week-long!
