Baked Orange Roughy
Happy New Year! Hope you had a great Holiday…after a big celebration to welcome 2010, we decided to eat lighter to compensate all what we ate for this Christmas and New Years celebration…
Orange Roughy? There are a couple of reasons:
1. My husband likes better white fish, according to him they are less “fishy”. I am not sure about his hypothesis, because I had white fishes that were very “fishy”, anyway, no need for further discussion…
2. I usually buy the fish frozen, individually packed at Costco, they defrost very fast so I can come up with something fast when I run out of idea, this is one of the recipe that I often use, again, it is simple, fast and very healthy. I like the idea of topping the fish with fresh crushed garlic, once baked, the garlic turns kind of crispy, adding a great flavor to the fish.
3 small filets Orange Roughy
2 cloves garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
Cover the filets with olive oil and sprinkle with crushed garlic, thyme, paprika, salt and pepper to taste.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 375F.
