I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Baked Fish and Cherry Tomatoes with Orzo

Try this flavourful dish tonight! It's bursting with garlic, sweet juicy tomatoes and the tang of lemon and capers!

2-3 tbsps olive oil
1 lb white fish fillets
sea salt and pepper to taste
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tsp capers
2 tsps minced garlic
2 tsps balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp cold butter
1 lemon
fresh chopped parsley and basil to garnish

Lemon Garlic Orzo:
2 cups water
1 cup orzo pasta
3 tbsps lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
2 tsps minced garlic
1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1/2 cup cooked green beans, cut in 1" pieces
salt and pepper to taste

Begin by oiling a 9 X 13" baking dish. Arrange the fish fillets in the dish so they are not overlapping then brush with some olive oil and add salt and pepper. Combine the tomatoes, capers, garlic, 2 tbsps olive oil and balsamic and pour over the fish. Put a couple of pieces of butter on each fillet along with a slice of lemon.
Bake at 425°F for 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily.

While the fish bakes prepare the orzo. Boil water in a medium saucepan and add the orzo. Cook according to package directions. Mix the lemon juice, zest, garlic, parsley, green beans, salt and pepper and toss together with the cooked orzo.

To serve spoon some orzo onto the plate and top with a fillet of fish. Add fresh chopped parsley and basil. So colourful and bright!
