Halibut with Roasted Veggies

At this point of my blogging career (if you want to call it that), I feel there's only so many times you can use the various words available to describe how delicious a meal is without starting to sound redundant. And feeling that way makes it very difficult to describe how awesome this meal was. I can say it was delectable, but it's not the first meal i've described that way. Or mouthwatering, which it was. Or scrumptious, tasty, yummy, divine. I've used them all. There are other words I haven't used yet, but I also haven't found meals that fit their meaning, or found the words sound natural enough to use them. I need to read more reviews and start going into more detail about the flavours. Here's my first crack at it.

The combined flavours of the fennel and thyme in this dish make it absolutely amazing. Halibut is such a light fish that it will take on the taste of whatever herbs and veggies you cook with it. This recipe seems fairly easy – but this is coming from someone who cooks very little. A great dinner after a long day at work, thanks to my wonderful husband.

What you’ll need
Red onion cut up
Fennel cut up
Cherry tomatoes
Big bunch of thyme
6 garlic cloves (whole)
Olive oil
Salt and Pepper

What to do
Put the veggies, thyme and garlic in a baking dish and sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes at 400. Add the fish and squirt everything with lemon and roast for another 10 minutes. Voilà!
