Sheet Pan Chili Lime Fish & Veggies

Sheet Pan Chili Lime Fish & Veggie Tacos - PhotoSheet Pan Chili Lime Fish & Veggies is a simple, quick and healthy sheet pan meal that comes together with 10 ingredients or less!  It is super easy and adaptable for a variety of family dietary needs and picky tastes which makes it a great weeknight meal.  We really enjoy the blend of spices & the zest of lime that adds a burst of flavor to your fish.

You have the option of putting it all on one pan but when I add corn, I like to spread it out on 2.  I add the corn as a good and easy kid vegetable option or to round out the meal when we are not having it as tacos.  There are a variety of ways you can enjoy this meal.

You can enjoy it simply with your favorite veggies and my suggestions are:

  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow Squash
  • Tomatoes
  • Peppers
  • Onions
  • Corn

It is also great as a taco or as a crispy taco (my kids favorite).  For the crispy taco simply put some of the fish and cheese in a small taco shell and pop it back in the oven for a few extra minutes.
