One would never fail with this dish. Not because you can do it with your eyes closed, but because the success of this combination (fish – greens – pasta) doesn’t rely on quantities. So, keep in mind that here, more than in any other recipe on Lazy Pasta, you can easily improvise on how much you’re going to prepare. The outcome is really tasty & easy to digest, as there is nothing fried or sautée (stir fried).

Ingredients for 4-5 servings:
– 500-700g sea-bass fillet
– 1 cup of whole wheat orzo
– 6-8 tbsp mustard
– 20-50g parsley, dill and any other aromatic green herb
– 1/2 cup olive oil
– 1 glass of white wine
– salt and pepper
Lay the sea-bass fillet on a tray or Pyrex and add salt and pepper.
Cover the sea-bass with mustard, spreading it all over the fish’s surface with a spoon or spatula.
Add some more pepper on top of the mustard.
Chop all your greens and add them in a large bowl.
Add the olive oil. By now, your orzo must be ready and you should have already drained it in a colander.
Also add the orzo and mix.
Using the mustard as the sticky ingredient, cover the pieces of the sea-bass with the orzo/greens mix.
In the end, add the white wine all over the orzo covered sea-bass.
Heat the oven and put the tray in at 220 °C for 20 minutes.
The sea-bass gets roasted in the wine and absorbs some the mustard’s and oil’s great flavours. Bon appetit!
