    spatchcock's Note:

    Threw this together tonight--we loved it! The tarragon is a wonderful ingredient in this dish. Ingredients are VERY MUCH approximated. I made enough orange roughy for two of us. It depends on the size of orange roughy you use--just eyeball it. Olive oil does not need to cover fish when it goes into the oven, because the fish will cook down and eventually get covered with it anyway.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 -3 orange roughy fillets (frozen is fine)
    • 1 -1 1/2 tablespoon tarragon (Dried, although I plan to use fresh when my tarragon gets larger!)
    • 1 -2 teaspoon paprika
    • kosher salt, to taste
    • 1/4 cup olive oil

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. 2
      In a glass baking dish, arrange orange roughy fillets and cover with olive oil.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle with tarragon, paprika and kosher salt.
    4. 4
      Bake for 25 minutes if fillets are frozen.
    5. 5
      Check to be sure they are done--you can usually tell by looking, because the fish will have shrunk quite a bit from cooking.
    6. 6
      It will also flake when prodded with a fork.
    7. 7
      I served this with some roasted brussel sprouts (roasted in a 375 degree oven at the same time as the fish was cooking, sprinkled with olive oil and kosher salt. YUM!).

      Well, either Orange Roughy is tasting better, or the recipes are, and this is a great one! I did add lemon juice to the mixture, before speading on the fish. I must admit, I couldn't wait for the fish to be baked, as I was very hungry, so I sauteed it on the stove top, 3 minutes a side. I then turned off the heat and put a lid on top for 1 extra minute. I find that this assures the doneness and moisture.

      This was delicious. We don't have orange roughy very often (due to Chef THX-1138 comments), but this was a special treat. Love the ease of the recipe and the herbs and spices really compliment the delicate flavor of the fish. I can't wait to try this on some fresh halibut. Thanks for my new go-to fish recipe!

      Outstanding! This recipe is perfect as-is, but I added broccoli with the fish and used the drippings to flavor a side of brown rice. On a sad side note, I learned that orange roughy is a vulnerable species. It takes them about 25 years to mature, and they may live to be up to 150 years old. Knowing that now I'll be consuming much less, but I have a feeling I'll alway use this recipe.
