A simple and vibrant fish dish easy enough for a weeknight, yet elegant enough for company.

Roasted Fish with Citrus

I’m always looking for new ways to get dinner on the table quickly during week without compromising on flavor. Fish is definitely on the shortlist and fish paired with citrus is a no-brainer. While lemon is my usual default, the market is literally teeming with oranges in every shape and size right now so I decided to mix it up.

This is one of those eat with your eyes first dishes thanks to the addition of vibrant orange clementines and the deep red of blood oranges. I recommend a firm white fish such as halibut or cod that can stand up to the bold citrus flavor and high cooking temperature. A quick glaze of sweetened citrus juice and a little soy sauce is brushed over the top and a final minute or two under the broiler caramelizes the citrus slices making them not only extra tasty, but a gorgeous garnish.

Obviously the quick prep and cooking time make this dinner perfect for busy weeknights, but this is also an elegant dish to serve when you’re entertaining. You can prep the glaze and slice the citrus hours before your company arrives and then pop it into the oven and dinner is served in minutes. Serve it with a side of jasmine rice and some seasoned steamed green beans or a bright green salad.

Easy, elegant and just the bright spot January needs. Enjoy!
