Roasted talapia with sheet pan sprouts and squash 5/10/22

Roasted talapia with sheet pan Brussels sprouts and butternut suash

Tonight’s easy, delicious, quick, and healthy dinner is all a matter of timing.


  • Turn the oven on to 425F convect
  • During the preheat season the fish in a baking dish with olive oil, Old Bay, salt, garlic powder, and tarragon leaves. Also halve the sprouts and cut the squash (pre-peeled and cut package) into uniform chunks. Shake the veg in a plastic bag with olive oil and salt. Lay the pieces out on a sheet pan covered in aluminum foil and sprayed with olive oil cooking spray.
  • By now the oven should be heated up. place the sheet pan in the oven and set timer for 10 minutes.
  • At 10 minutes check for doneness. My sprouts were large and took longest to cook. Rotate the sheet pan.
  • At this point put the fish in the oven. I put mine on a rack just under the vegetables. Set timer for another 10 minutes but keep your eye on the vegetables and pull them when they are done and cover loosely with foil. I took mine out of the oven at 20 minutes total. They waited two minutes while the fish finished up.
  • After the second 10 minutes are up, temp the fish. Anything between 125 and 140 should be fine. Ours needed an extra two minutes at this point.
  • Serve with lemon or tartar sauce. I used some leftover sauce grabiche.

Voila! Dinner is on the table in 22 minutes! Although talapia gets no respect as a food fish, it is a mild tasting white fish which takes to sauces well and in the world of expensive fish is relatively cheap. I buy them frozen in a bag of individual fillets from Costco.
