Sometimes the simplest of meals are the most delicious. Take this uncomplicated fish and tomato dish, for example. There's nothing out of the ordinary, it's just a piece of firm-fleshed fish with a light pan sauce of garlic and tomatoes.
However, a hint of something special, say half a cup of fresh-squeezed orange juice, ensures that simple is not boring. Serve this fish with a side of mixed greens dressed with a garlic vinaigrette and topped with shaved parmesan cheese. Get the recipe that's sure to brighten your Wednesday when you
