White Fish in Orange Butter Sauce.

This is my take on a Recipe that is in Martha Stewart's cookbook Everyday Food called Sole with Lemon-Butter Sauce. I like this cookbook, as I do the PBS show, because they are straight forward recipes without 50 ingredients.

This kids love fish in general, but this one was a big hit with the orange flavored sauce. Meat that tastes like orange sauce, what not to like.


1/4 cup white wine

juice of 1 orange

4 tilapia fillets

Salt and pepper

8 thin orange slices

2 tablespoons butter

Place the wine in a large non reactive pan with a lid. Roll the fish and hold together with a toothpick season with salt and pepper. Place the fish into the pan with 2 slices of orange on each fillets.

Bring the Wine to a boil; reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and gently simmer until the fish is cooked, about 5 minutes. Carefully transfer the fish to a platter and remove the toothpicks and cover to keep warm.

Reduce the liquid by about half (1 to 2 minutes). Remove from heat and add the orange juice and butter to the sauce and stir until butter is melted and mixed into the sauce. spoon sauce over fish and garnish with fresh dill.
