Orange roughy tastes really good with just butter and garlic. This is a very basic and flavorful recipe. It goes really well with grilled asparagus and pine nuts.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Wash the fillets and pat them dry.
  3. Place the fillets in a baking pan and top with the garlic, olive oil and about a tablespoon of butter on each filet. Salt and pepper to taste, then put it in the oven.
  4. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until it flakes with a fork and is opaque all the way through.
  5. Enjoy!

Very easy, very healthy, very tasty as posted. As good as any $20+ entree at a restaurant. I served it with roasted asparagus in a dribble of olive oil and a twist of sea salt and pepper ---dusted it with parmasan cheese and a squeeze of lemon out of the oven. I roasted a mix of baby red, blue and white potatoes on the other half of the tray with the asparagus. Looked great on the plate. Next time I will make a topping of artichokes and oyster mushrooms to go over. I think it could work.
