Orange Roughy with Gremolada Bread Crumbs Recipe

  • 4 (8 ounce) fillets orange roughy
  • Salt
  • Fresh-ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Season the orange-roughy fillets with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/8 teaspoon of pepper. Put the fish fillets in a glass or stainless-steel baking dish and add the wine and the 1/4 cup oil to the dish. Bake the fish until just done, about 12 minutes for 3/4-inch-thick fillets.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small frying pan, toast the bread crumbs over low heat, stirring, until they're light brown and fragrant, about 4 minutes. Stir in the garlic, lemon zest, and parsley and cook 1 minute longer. Remove from the heat and stir in 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil.
  3. Transfer the fish to plates. Sprinkle with the bread crumbs and spoon the pan juices around the fish.
