A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Orange Roughy with Red Pepper Sauce

Every menu needs a focal point in terms of color and taste, and for this menu it is definitely this vibrant fish dish. Full of wonderful color and delightful flavor, it makes for a great entrée that is very healthy…as well as quick and easy to prepare. Orange Roughy is a mild flavored freshwater fish with a lovely firm texture. If you cannot find it, or have other fish on hand, you can use fresh or frozen whitefish, tilapia, or pike in its place. The sauce can be made up to 24 hours in advance and just reheated before serving if desired.

1/4 cup water
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 skinless 1/2 inch thick fresh or thawed frozen orange roughy fillets (about 1/2 pound total)
1 roasted sweet red bell pepper
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice
Pinch crumbled dried basil
Salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Place the water and wine in a large flat skillet and bring to a boil. Add the fish and return to a boil. Cover and reduce the heat to medium low. Simmer for 4-5 minutes, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily when tested with a fork. While the fish is cooking, add the remaining ingredients to a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Place the red pepper sauce in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until warm, stirring frequently. Once the sauce is hot, keep warm over low heat until ready to serve. Place the fish on individual plates and top with the sauce to serve.

Makes 2 Servings.
