Maple Cajun Fish Fillet with Herb Roasted Potatoes and Green Beans

 Hi loves. 
Today I bring you a very easy and quick dinner option. The fish is no doubt the main focus of this dish. I came across the idea of using maple syrup to season fish some time ago, so I searched for recipes that I'm comfortable with to try. I found this one on All recipe and modified it a bit to fit my taste. I love the simplicity and easiness of this recipe and can't wait to modify it even more and try it on Salmon. 

The potato recipe is already a staple in my kitchen, adapted from one of my favorite recipes previously posted here. There is a little variation in how I make it each time, adding new ingredients or leaving one out but the overall idea remains the same. Another way to make potatoes without boiling water or using the oven.

I must say I've been on the hunt for the perfect way to cook green beans and I'm yet to find one that satisfies my need. There's either to much extra stuff added or it comes out too soft or too hard. I finally gave up on trying to find recipes and decided to experiment in my kitchen till I get what I want. So, this green beans recipe my friends, is my perfect go-to way of making it. Sometimes, less is more. I finally have the perfect timely down to get the right texture and crunchiness I've been looking for. 

Combine these three individual staples together and you get one balance and tasty meal.
Enjoy!
