About Orange Roughy

Discovered in 1975 off the coast of New Zealand, this very deepwater fish has now become a popular item in fish stores and restaurants. Caught from depths of almost 2000 feet, deepwater trawlers haul up the catch onto large factory boats that stay at sea for months at a time. As the fish is caught it is cleaned, bled and flash frozen for transport, resulting in a fresher product than some fish caught locally here. Air shipped to the United States from New Zealand, it has more airline flyer miles than most people! Limit your spices and enjoy this fish from down under.

Seviche with Kiwi

Deepwater fish are highly recommended for seviche as they as less likely to have the occasional natural parasite found in inshore fish. Serviche must “cook” in a citrus marinade at least 8 hours. Prepare this recipe in the morning to be served at night, or the day before

• ¾ cup each orange and lemon juice
• ½ of an orange, outer peel cut into 1 by ¼ inch strips
• 1 pound Orange Roughy fillets, rinsed, and cut into 1 inch by ¼ inch pieces
• 1 small red onion, sliced
• 3 medium kiwis, peeled and sliced

Mix juices, peel and fish in glass bowl. Cover and refrigerate up to 8-10 hours or over night, tossing occasionally so juices marinate all fish pieces. Fish will be opaque when done. In serving bowl place kiwi and onion. With slotted spoon lift fish from marinade and mix, reserving ¼ cup of marinade. Prepare dressing, then toss with fish and fruit. Serve on watercress salad. Serves two.

Dressing: Mix 

• ¼ cup marinade
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 tablespoon capes
• 1 teaspoon minced fresh jalapeno chile
