Orange-y Orange Ruffy

A healthy dinner the fiancé will enjoy! I'm constantly looking for ways to make chicken and fish tasty enough for the fiancé while still being healthy for both of us. Let's face it...I don't want to eat a steak every night and I don't want beer battered fish and chips either...

Fish used to scare me, but with a little bit of research and guidance, it can actually be really easy!

  • Fresh Orange Ruffy (ready to cook - aka, no bones or skin)
  • 1 large orange
  • sea salt
  • cracked pepper
  • butter
  • Preheat oven at 450 degrees
  • Gently rub sea salt and cracked pepper on both sides of the fish
  • Slice orange slices to cover the bottom of your cooking dish
  • Place the fish on top of the oranges, cover with tin foil, place in oven
  • Cook for roughly 10 minutes depending on size (my fish was 1/2 lb)
  • Remove from oven and CAREFULLY remove the tin foil so that you don't burn yourself with the steam
  • Squeeze the rest of the orange over the fish liberally and place two pats of butter on top
  • Bake uncovered until butter is melted and the fish has a faint golden/brown color from the butter (about 5ish minutes)
For newbies and scaredy-cats (I was that way too!): this is how you know when fish is cooked.

I paired this with red new potatoes and zucchini for a tasty, healthy, light, fresh, summery dinner.
