Sheet pan dinners are all the rage due to easy recipes and fast cleanup time. Parmesan Crusted Fish is a perfect sheet pan meal. I've used tilapia and cod for this recipe and both are moist and delicious.
This 30 minute baked fish sheet pan meal is super easy and quick. I'm not so good at meal planning even though I'm a dietitian. I frequently come home at the last-minute and make a quick meal with no planning ahead. Here's how I make a meal in 30 minutes with no plan.
How to make a sheet pan meal:
The key when making a sheet pan meal is to know how long each food item takes to cook. You don't want fish to cook the entire time something like potatoes or carrots would cook or it would be dry.
To make this meal, there are two options. You could cook it on several baking sheets or in baking dishes. When making items all on one sheet pan, you need to decide if they all take the same time to bake. Since the potatoes and carrots take longer to cook, I put them on the pan first and bake for 10-15 minutes, then add the fish for an additional 15-20 minutes. Easy way to do a one dish meal.
On this sheet pan meal I used potatoes and carrots for the sides, but you could use any vegetable such as zucchini, broccoli, or cauliflower. That's the beauty of sheet pan meals! Use what you have!Print
