1 medium red bell pepper, cut in strips
1/2 onion, chopped
6 mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place each fish fillet on a piece of foil. Divide vegetables over fillets.
2. In a small bowl, combine lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, and oil. Pour 1 tablespoon over each fillet. Close foil around each fillet, sealing completely. Bake about 20 minutes.
