“Adapted from a Splendid Table How to Eat Supper recipe. Use other citrus fruits in place of the orange, if you wish.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Puree the oil, garlic, lemon, and jalpeno in a food processor or blender.
  3. Oil a shallow baking pan sized to hold the fillets in a single layer and lay a bed of cilantro, onion, and orange on the bottom of the pan.
  4. Rub the garlic-lemon puree on both sides of the fillets and place them on top of the bed of cilantro, onion, and citrus slices. Drizzle any remaining puree on top of the fillets.
  5. Let the fillets rest and marinate for 10 minutes or so, then roast them in the hot oven for 10 minutes. Run under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes to color the top, if necessary. Discard the wilted cilantro and citrus slices before serving. The cooked sliced onion can be served with the fish.
