Ingredients

  • 4 orange roughy fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 20 fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • SAUCE:
  • 2/3 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh basil or 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • Wrap each fillet around five asparagus spears; secure with toothpicks. Place in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Cover and bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with onions. Bake, uncovered, 12-15 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork and asparagus is crisp-tender.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the sauce ingredients until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Discard toothpicks from bundles; serve with sauce.
