Gorgeous orange-glazed fish

This is a truly caveman dish, in a sense that we caught this fish ourselves and then cooked it. Can it be more sustainable and more Paleo?

I used King fish for this recipe – white fish with no bones and firm meat, so it does not fall apart when you cook it. You can use any white fish or even salmon fillet. I like my fish to have skin on, though you can remove it if you want.

Fish Filet

Cooking time with preparation – 30-35 min


  • 2 White fish or salmon fillets
  • 1 large orange
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4-5 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground rosemary mixed up with 1/2 tsp of sea salt


Pour orange juice all over your fish fillets and let them sit and marinate for 15-20 min. Meanwhile finely chop or mash your garlic and mix with olive oil.

Put the frying pan on medium heat, pour oil with garlic in and once hot – fry your fish on one side for 3-6 min depending on how thick your fish fillet is. While fish is being cooked on one side, sprinkle rosemary and salt mixture on top. Then turn your fish and cook on the other side for 3-6 min, sprinkle rosemary and salt on top.

Once fish is cooked, pour orange juice you used for marinating into the pan and again cook your fish on each side for approximately 1-2 minutes.

Orange glazed fish

Verdict: Amazingly tender fish with a slight orange flavor. Tastes much better than it looks on the picture due to my substandard photography skills 😀

Note to self: learn to photograph food, use white plates and do not attempt to do it in the middle of the night with kitchen light off!
