Tray-baked Seafood with White Beans and Capsicum
In Japanese cuisine, green tea rice, known as ‘ ochazuke’, is a much enjoyed comfort food. It can be as simple as green tea poured over cooked rice, but to make a more substantial meal it’s often topped with salmon or tuna.
Serve this super tasty one-pan meal with crusty rolls and a side of hot cooked spaghetti tossed with olive oil.
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Vegetable base: Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and season. Tip into a large shallow roasting tray. Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the vegetables have started to soften and the juices thicken.
Increase the oven to 220°C.
Seafood: Nestle all the seafood into the vegetable base then drizzle the pieces of fish with olive oil, paprika, salt and pepper. Roast for 10-15 minutes or until the mussels and cockles have opened and the remaining seafood is cooked.
Discard any shellfish that do not open.
Squeeze the hot lemons over the top then gently spoon the pan juices over everything. Scatter with the parsley and serve immediately. Serves 4
