- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp coriander
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 4 cups butternut squash, chopped
- 2 lbs. cod (whole piece or fillets)
- 1 U zucchini, chopped
- 1 U summer squash, chopped
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Mix together all the spices to create the blackening season. You could also use store-bought blackening seasoning if you prefer.
Toss the butternut squash with olive oil and about half of the blackening seasoning. I like a lot of the seasoning but you may want to use less depending on how much spice you like.
Cover a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Spread the butternut squash on the baking sheet in one layer and place in the oven. Cook for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, push the butternut squash to one side of the baking sheet and add the fish, zucchini, and summer squash. Sprinkle with blackening seasoning. Return to oven and cook for 8-10 minutes until fish is flaky and cooked through.
