Spicy Fish with Courgettes

A super spicy fish with courgettes recipe that’s  an all in one super dish! So easy to prepare ahead and simply bang in the oven, go away and ta-dah dinner’s ready. It’s super low carb (only the breadcrumbs). One of the reasons I think  it works so well is the combination of the sweetness of the tomatoes, with the sharpness of the lemon juice and a kick of spice from the chilli.

I make it very often – so tasty and so flipping easy!

My friend does this recipe with chicken strips and says it’s lovely too!

You need to give it a go, really you do – my go to simple, easypeasylemonsqueezy supper. It’s also perfect for using up that massive glut of courgettes in courgette season!
