Buttery Baked Lemon-Herbed Orange Roughy



This is the best fish I have eaten in many a day!

And, I know the reason why…

BUTTER ~ the fish is coated with butter!

 
Ready to bake



I generally add no oil, just a shot of cooking spray on the pan, but this orange roughy changed that!

This is a simple fish recipe, adapted slightly, from Pillsbury that turned out splendidly…

First off, I melted butter in the baking pan, then turned the fish to coat the other side with butter. 

Then added a bit of dried basil, and other seasonings, along with a pint of cherry tomatoes; finishing with a splash of wine and lemon juice.  

It was delicious ~ we were just short of licking the platter clean ~ wishing I had made more.

In Paula Deene’s words:   “First I’m gonna add a little butter.  Not to worry cause I’m gonna come back later and add some more butter, ya’ll.”

    1. Thanks, Evelyne! Orange roughy is a mild delicate tasting fish with large flakes. It's great baked, grilled or broiled and is similar to perch or red snapper. It's good!

The smells of slow cooking spread around the house and impart a unique warmth matched only by the flavour of the food.
