Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

Get out your baking dish and cut a piece of aluminum foil to fit over the baking dish by two inches. This will give you extra aluminum foil to form a pouch after the fish is ready.

Pour half of your olive oil on the bottom of the aluminum foil

Step 4

Chop up your green pepper into bite-size pieces. Then grate your onion, garlic and carrots into shreds. Combine and place half of it on the bottom of the aluminum foil
