2 carrots peeled and thinly sliced
2 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 broccoli, only the florets, washed or 4 zucchinis sliced

2 cloves of garlic, sliced
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon dried thyme
4 tablespoons olive oil
The juice of 1 lemon
1 glass of white wine
Salt and pepper
Wash and cut the vegetables. Clean and wash the breams. Preheat oven to 180° C.
Grease a baking sheet or an ovenproof dish and place inside the breams. Add the carrots, the potatoes, the broccoli, the garlic cloves, the celery, the parsley and the bay leaves between the fish.
