  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C degrees.

  2. Brush the bottom of a square baking dish with the first portion of olive oil. (Note: this is for 4 servings; adjust pan size if customizing.) Spread sliced onions in the bottom of the baking dish. Top with tomatoes, olives, and lemon slices.

  3. Place fish filets in the baking dish, nestling them into the vegetables. Sprinkle the tops of the fish filets with chopped garlic and oregano and drizzle with second portion of olive oil.

  4. Scatter dill (portion for fish) over top of everything, and cover the baking dish tightly with foil.

  5. Bake until fish filets are cooked through and flake easily with a fork, 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness.

  6. If bulgur was made ahead, warm it in the microwave (remember to reserve half if doubled).

  7. Give cucumber salad a stir.

  8. Form a bed of bulgur on serving plates. Top with fish filets (discard lemon slices), tomatoes, olives, and onions and sprinkle with feta crumbles (if using). Serve with cucumber-dill salad on the side. Enjoy!
