"I love orange roughy. This is a nameless recipe I just came up with using things I had on hand. It is made in a skillet, but no frying here. If you wish to omit the feta, create another distinct flavor by mixing 1/2 pound chopped mushrooms with the white wine and tomatoes." — CHRIS523

4 (4 ounce) fillets
chopped fresh basil
ground black pepper
dried thyme, crushed
dried rosemary, crushed

FANTASTIC! We enjoyed this recipe very much! The sauce would be great on just about anything! I had dried rosemary leaves so I used my mortar and pestal to grind them to a fine powder, and it was good that way. Before serving, I removed the fish and added 1T cornstarch (mixed with water) to the sauce to thicken it (it was too soupy) and this turned out nicely! I used a crumbled tomato and basil feta and it just made the dish! Don't leave off the feta cheese! I also added 2t minced garlic to the sauce along with the spices, and was happy with the result! We will definitely be making this one again! Thanks for the post!
I am the rare person who didn't like this recipe... I was skeptical about it to begin with because I had a feeling the flavors would overpower the fish, which is a very delicate tasting one. All of the flavors did turn out, for me, to be too strong. If you don't enjoy the flavor of orange roughy on its own, I would suggest making this and serving it on alongside some nice hot buttered angel hair or other thin pasta. Otherwise, try one of the orange/lemon juice based orange roughy recipes on the site.
This was GREAT -- so easy and healthy!! I did add a clove of minced garlic w/ the onion. I would recommend draining the liquid from the tomatoes and reserving it, just in case you need it. I used fresh basil from my garden and this was a hit w/ my family !!! Thanks Christopher!
This is one great recipe! I prepared it for my family last night using a sauvignon blanc wine. After removing the fish from the simmering liquid I ladled out a little over a cup of it and added it to one cup of couscous, let it sit for about five minutes, then fluffed it with a fork. I served the fish over the couscous for a delicious meal! I also prepared "Broccoli, Corn, and Green Bean Saute" from this site. Thank you for this recipe that I will fix again soon!
Very good. Next time I will try the previous reviewers suggestion and add a little garlic and used fresh herbs. I did use the juice from the tomatoes and almost had to add water because all of the liquid was evaporating (I only made 1 filet.)
Yet another review of 5 stars. Perfect combo for Orange Roughy. As other reviewers have said, the cheese makes this dish! And as other reviewers said, let the liquid reduce a bit before adding the fish.
This was really good and easy to make. I added garlic along with the green onion to the olive oil. Also, like another reviewer suggested, allow the wine and tomato mixture to reduce by about 2/3 before adding the fish otherwise it will be very soupy. This was very tasty and light. I will make it again!
My husband loved it, and he usually doesn't like fish. Serve w/o the feta to lower the fat... it stills tastes great and is super quick & easy!!
