So Good I Licked the Plate

Orange Roughy in cilantro-lime-ginger marinade. With sautéed spinach.

Ok, so here's the marinade:

about 1/4 bunch of fresh cilantro*
juice of one lime*
one or two garlic cloves*
about a 1/2 inch of fresh ginger*
about a tablespoon of olive oil*

Place all ingredients in a food processor and mince to your desired consistency. Add the olive oil and mince till incorporated. Marinade the fish** for 45 minutes or however long you like. Overnight would be good.

Either bake or sauté the fish. However you like and whatever is easiest for you.

Serve atop sautéed spinach. Or some rice pilaf. Or maybe some angel hair pasta. Whatever makes you happy.


*Add as much or as little of these things as you like. It's your marinade, and you can make it how you like it.

**I used about 3/4 of a pound of orange roughy. If you need more for your growing family, you might want to double or triple the marinade recipe. Other white fish like tilapia or cod would probably work just as well, too.
