Total Time
Prep 10 mins

I made this up one night when I had some fresh fish, and not too much in the fridge that I could add to it. I served it with garlic & parmesan couscous, peas, and a salad.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 226.79 g orange roughy, cut into fillets
  • 44.37 ml butter
  • 4 clove garlic, minced
  • 14.79 ml white wine
  • 59.14 ml onion, cut into rings
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Rinse filets in water, pat dry with paper towels.
  3. Set aside.
  4. Melt butter in a small saucepan.
  5. Add garlic, and white wine, stirring until all is mixed together.
  6. Spray a small square glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  7. Sprinkle both sides of fish with salt and pepper, and lay fish filets in the dish.
  8. Lay onion rings on top of fish, and pour garlic butter mixture over everything.
  9. Bake at 450 for 12-15 minutes, until fish flakes when you pick at it with a fork.
  10. This is super easy, low in calories, and also tastes great.

I was asked to put this on the regular menu rotation (which is a big deal considering the men in the family aren't big on fish). I prepared it as specified, only I added a little lemon pepper to give it a little zip. It was perfect!
