Ingredients

  • 2
    tablespoons margarine or butter
  • 3/4
    lb. orange roughy fillets (1/4 to 1/2 inch thick), cut into 4 pieces
  • 1/2
    teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1
    cup chopped Italian plum tomatoes
  • 1/2
    teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4
    teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4
    cup white cooking wine or apple juice
  • 4
    teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Place margarine in 12x8-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish. Heat in oven for 3 to 5 minutes or just until margarine sizzles. Remove baking dish from oven; tilt to coat bottom with melted margarine.
  • 2
    Place orange roughy fillets in baking dish; turn to coat with margarine. Sprinkle each fillet with basil. Top with tomatoes, seasoned salt and garlic powder. Pour 1 tablespoon wine and 1 teaspoon lemon juice over each fillet. Cover with foil.
  • 3
    Bake at 350°F. for 15 to 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork. Remove fish and tomatoes from dish with slotted pancake turner.

  • Children can help measure the basil, tomatoes, salt, garlic powder, wine and lemon juice, and then help top the fish fillets.
  • Buy fresh fish from a fish counter that doesn't smell "fishy" or like ammonia, and where fish are displayed on pans set into ice rather that directly on the ice.
