Tropical Orange Roughy

We needed a quick meal tonight before my husband ran out the door at 6:30, so fish was the obvious choice. We enjoy orange roughy for it’s mild flavor and the opportunity to dress it up with fruit.

We juiced an orange and a lemon and mixed it with a tablespoon of EVOO, and set the fish in a skillet with the liquid, on medium heat.

While that cooked, we quickly sautéed some broccolini in 1 tsp olive oil, lid on, to steam and sauté.

While that was cooking, we made a salsa of salt-free black beans, chopped mango, coarsely chopped red onion, 2 Tbsp. white balsamic vinegar, 1 tsp olive oil, and 2 Tbsp minced fresh mint leaves.

Gave that a stir, flipped the fish to the other side, and in a few minutes, dinner was on the table! 15 minutes from start to plate!
