Baked Orange Roughy

11 Jun

This is a light, simple fish entree that pairs well with roasted vegetables (broccoli, asparagus, brussels sprouts – something green to brighten up the plate). Serve with rice pilaf or a dinner salad.

Serves two, generously.

– Two fillets of orange roughy (about one pound total)
– Two tsp olive oil
– Two tbsp salted butter
– Two tbsp garlic, finely minced
– Salt
– Lemon pepper, or regular pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Rinse fish fillets and pat dry with paper towels.

Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Lightly brush both sides of each fish fillet with olive oil and arrange on baking sheet.

Spread one tbsp of garlic on each fillet, then dot each with one tbsp butter. Lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Place in pre-heated oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until fish is no longer opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

    Yummy! Go for those really small fillets, too! They are the best because they were from immature fish! It’s great to have one last meal before there aren’t enough orange roughy to make fishing economical! Eat, sh_t, and sleep! Who cares! I’ll be dead before the population recovers!
