Party Food: Baked Rosemary Dory

You can still party while trying to be healthy! Just tweak some recipes and think out of the box. better yet, create new recipes that use less oil and have healthier ingredients.

I came up with this recipe on my own after eating fried fish steaks with toast and orange marmalade. The combination was heavenly, but I thought I could make it even more healthful! So here's a new recipe: Baked Rosemary Dory with Orange Marmalade

Ingredients: Dory Fillet, Bell Pepper, Onion, Salt, Pepper, Orange Marmalade, Water

Slice your Onions and Bell Peppers. It doesn't matter how big or small you slice them, but i like to cut my Onions and bell peppers like this ^
Grab a baking sheet and cover it with aluminum foil.
Lay your onions on the pan
Place your dory fillets on top of your onions, using your onions as a "bed"
season with salt and pepper. Make sure not to go overboard with the seasoning, as this will still shrink. Plus, dory has a delicate flavor to begin with
Top your fillets with your julienned bell peppers
Drizzle with a generous amount of dried rosemary. Make sure to rub the rosemary pieces between your palms to release the oils. Rosemary has an herby, lemony flavor.
Cover the pan with another sheet of aluminum
and bake until the bell peppers and onions have turned soft. The fish, and everything else will shrink
You could serve this as it is. Most filipinos would want to have this with soy sauce, but i don't think it works well with the rosemary taste.
Like me, you could opt to top your dish with some orange marmalade. Since i was trying to eat healthier, i used sugar-free, fat-free, no-calorie orange marmalade. It works real well with the rosemary taste.
For something healthy, it tastes sooooooooo good!

Serve this on your next house party, and the guests will be impressed! the clean, fresh tastes, coupled with some interesting flavors will make this an instant party favorite!
