Orange Fish

After the rain Monday night, it was cool enough to use the oven for dinner. I wanted fish, and this was the result.

Fair Warning: This is a very typical Marjie recipe. I usually think about them more carefully to come up with measurements and whatnot, but this one just didn't lend itself to such contemplation.

Every time I buy oranges, I take the orange part off the peel with a great Pampered Chef "Zester", put the peel in a glass dish, and freeze it. That was the inspiration for my fish. Here goes - a classic non-specific recipe!


1 pound of white fish (or whatever amount you need)
Salt - about 1/4 tsp
Fresh or Frozen orange zest
Butter - 2 to 3 tbsp

Spray your pan to prevent sticking. Put your fish filet in the pan. Sprinkle a tiny amount of salt over the fish. Spread copious amounts of orange zest over the fish. Line up pats of butter over the orange zest. Bake at 400F until the fish is done (mine took about 12 minutes). Serve over rice with a salad and a nice green veggie.

Only one picture - sorry! It was just one of those days!

I think you should submit this one to Pampered Chef - seriously. Just a few ingredients, and then can match up a product of theirs for every step of preparation.

Fish usually doesn't need much for me and I'm sure I'd like this one.

I bet the orange gave the fish such a great flavor!

hey, if oranges can make fish taste less like fish, i'm all for it. :)
