  • 2 cup sliced zucchini
  • 1 cup cut up cauliflower
  • 1 broccoli head, cut into florets
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (or juice of 2 limes)
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil + 2 for veggies
  • 2 tablespoons water

  3. Place carrots, zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet.

  5. Brush fish with the chili-lime mixture.
