It’s getting warmer. I left the house without my puffer the other day. It felt quite liberating. Don’t laugh. Not unless you get winters like ours in which case it is a laughter of commiseration and I sort of want to fist bump you. Note to self: fist bumping is generally unnecessary unless you’re mimicking Baymax and Hiro from Big Hero 6 and it’s just you and your kids. Anyway back to the great weather. Unlike winter where my main outdoor activity is shoveling soon, warmer weather means I want to spend more time outside and less time inside cooking. That is the number one reason I love the idea of tray bakes. One pan dinners, minimal muss or fuss, healthy and tasty.

Thai Fish Tray Bake

Thai Fish Tray Bake

This Thai Fish Tray Bake was inspired by a Jamie Oliver recipe where fish and rice are baked together in one dish in a green curry style base. It is one of my favourite JO dishes, but there is a lot of rice and I’ve already piled on a years worth of carbs this winter. Therefore I wanted to create a Thai Fish Tray Bake that had those flavours, but less guilt and time and am pleased with the result. You can always eat this with a side of rice (white or brown) or a delicious Thai Crunch Salad.

If you’re a fellow desi then maybe you aren’t crazy about serving a meal on a baking sheet. In that case feel free to transfer it to a platter, scatter over some cilantro, add a few wedges of lime and dig in. I personally have eaten straight from the baking sheet more than once.

    I think this is a brilliant idea to bake the dish instead of using a pot to cook. Has tonnes of flavors.
