Orange Roughy With Tarragon





2 to 3 orange roughy fillets (frozen is fine)
1 to 1-1/2 dried tarragon
1 to 2 tsp. paprika
Kosher salt, to taste
1/4 cup olive oil


Preheat oven to 375°F. In a glass baking dish, arrange orange roughy fillets and cover with olive oil. Sprinkle with tarragon, paprika and kosher salt. Bake for 25 minutes if fillets are frozen. Check to be sure they are done -- you can usually tell by looking, because the fish will have shrunk quite a bit from cooking. It will also flake when prodded with a fork.

I served this with some roasted brussel sprouts (roasted in a 375°F oven at the same time as the fish was cooking, sprinkled with olive oil and kosher salt. YUM!).

I threw this together one night and we loved it! I have made it many times since. 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.
