Orange Roughy with Capers, Shallots and Wine Butter Sauce

Published on March 29, 2013 | Fish

An impromptu dinner: Orange Roughy with capers, shallots and wine butter sauce. Really nothing to it and yet a wonderful sauce that asks for a piece of bread to enjoy with the sauce.
A green salad with a lemon vinaigrette, a very simple dinner on Good Friday evening.
Bon Appetit!




1 lemon

4 orange roughy fillets

Salt and Pepper to taste

1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot

6 tablespoons of unsalted butter

1 tablespoon capers

½ cup white wine

Cut the lemon in half. Save one half, squeeze out the juice and keep aside until ready to make the sauce. Take the other half and cut in 4 wedges to serve along with the fish when ready to serve.

Season the fillets lightly with salt and pepper.

Heat 4 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the butter stop foaming, add the shallot and cook for 1 minute. Add the fillets and capers. Cook turning once, until golden brown and fully cooked. About 2 minutes. Add the wine and cook for another 3 minutes.

Transfer to the dinner plates and keep warm.

Lower the heat under the skillet and swirl in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter.  When the butter is melted, but not foaming, add the juice of the half lemon.

Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper to taste.

Remove from the heat.  Spoon the sauce over the fillets and serve the lemon wedge along side the fish.
