For the Potatoes:

  • 1 lb.  white potatoes  (washed and cut into cubes (do not peel if organic))

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Season the fish with salt and rub with olive oil inside and out. Stuff the fish with 1 tablespoon of capers, 2 cherry tomatoes that have been halved, 2 garlic cloves and 2 lemon rounds. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl mix potatoes with olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the potatoes to a large roasting pan and try to spread them into 1 layer. Top with the bay leaves. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes, after flipping with a spatula, to ensure even browning and roast for another 20 minutes.
  4. Place the fish on top of the potatoes and roast for 20 – 30 minutes or until the fish is a nice golden color, the flesh is done (check with a fork in the middle of the fish) but still juicy.
  5. When ready transfer to a serving plate and garnish with lemon rounds, fresh basil, and microgreens.
