Roasted fish & veggies- how to make presentation in the dish

I recently purchased a beautiful fish baker dish. Any ideas on how to make a lovely presentation with a whole fish & veggies within the pan for a dinner party?

LGR27 -
Here are a couple ideas.
Use 3 vegetables or 3 colors (fush plus vegetables) in your presentation. Or 5.
Why? Odd numbers are more visually interesting than even ones.
Look at apps like pinterest or Instagram for fish plating ideas. Even if they are only for one serving, you can adapt them for a multiperson presentation.

Should read "fish plus vegetables"

Thank you! Pinterest has proved quite helpful. I guess a prong of my question that I didn’t make clear was if I should roast the veggies and then add in the fish all in the same dish but I think yes!

Agree with drbabs - roast fish & veg separately, then figure out how to present together.

Very pretty! I’d roast the vegetables separately on a sheet pan. They will take longer to cook than the fish, and you’ll likely need more vegetables than what will fit in your dish. If you crowd everything in the dish, it will steam, and you’ll miss the caramelization benefits of roaring.

Thank you so much!! This is exactly what I needed to know. I didn’t word my question very well. Excellent!
