    Default Orange Roughy



    I bought a bag of frozen orange roughy filets, each one wrapped neatly in a
    little plastic bag. I hadn't made this fish in a while, but I knew it was
    tasty. Well I wasn't sure how I ought to prepare it, and the package said
    to simply place it on a baking sheet, sprinkle it with salt, pepper and
    garlic powder, and bake it. That sounded very plain, but I changed that
    only a little. I thawed the filets out first.

    I covered the pan with foil (easier to clean up)
    Sprayed it with Pam.
    Placed the filets on the foil.
    Sprinkled with the salt, pepper, garlic powder and a bit of paprika for
    color.
    Sprayed a tiny bit more Pam spray on top
    Baked it at 400 for about 15 minutes.

    It was so delicious you can't believe it. Simple and healthy and very
    good.

    Just thought I'd pass this on in case somebody wanted to try Orange Roughy.

    It's actually one of the species I won't touch, because they're really
    slow growing, very long lived, and on the danger list. The fish you
    ate might have been 100+ years old, and because they live so slowly
    and so long, they don't increase their numbers quickly. They're
    becoming very overfished.

    You sond like my biologist son who will only eat fish that are on the
    approved list form either the US Audubon society or the Moterey Aquarium
    in California. No farm raised salmon because they endanger the natural,
    wild species, not Chilian sea bass because it is also a slow grower and
    is getting over fished, etc/ He has made me so self-conscious aobut
    eating fish that I find myself limited to farmed tilapia, bluefish and
    brook trout as the wild salmon is ao pricey.

    I think catfish is ok and is often farm raised. I really can't be sure as
    I don't eat it as is is not considered kosher-no scales. Fidh must have
    both fins and scales. You could google either the audubon society or the
    Monterey aquarium to find out what is where on their lists.

    Wendy, Trader Joe's has really high quality frozen wild salmon. Costco,
    too, but it's sockeye, which is really lean and makes me gag.

    Fairway which has nice fresh fish and Citarella's with higher prised
    excellent fish. Pain in the neck for me. I will remember shuld I ever

    I don't buy the Costco stuff only because the only they carry here is
    Sockeye, which is extremely lean and the texture literally makes me gag.

    Pesto, huh? Interesting suggestion. Costco has a wonderful brand of
    prepared pesto, so I've become a Lazy Pesto Consumer.

    tee hee, i use CostCo's Pesto sauce........... way too easy to use

    the olive oil in the mix will moisten the salmon as well, and i prefer
    it to 'tartar sauce' (gack)

    i was googling for recipes for fish one day and 'pesto sauce' kept
    coming up as a common theme, so i added Pesto sauce to the grocery list

    love it! very delish (careful, don't over do it, a little goes a long way)
