This is a wonderful one-pan meal, it is so easy to prepare and absolutely delicious. I used Panga fillets that were gifted to me by Bradley’s https://bradleysfish.com/ (they deliver throughout the UK) use the code Victoria-15 at check out for a 15% discount.
Panga is also known as Pangases/Basa, a farmed freshwater meaty fish.
Pangasius is becoming a staple in the seafood industry because it can be farmed and grown in freshwater lakes. You can cook panga by pan-frying with oil for a few minutes on each side or oven-baking until opaque throughout. Panga fillets are white in color and about an inch thick. They are tender and moist, with a firm texture and mild flavour.
- Heat the olive oil in a large oven proof frying pan or casserole. Now add the onion and orzo, cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes.
- Now add the tinned tomatoes, water, oregano and olives, season to taste. Cook for 8-10 minutes until the sauce is thick and the orzo is cooked through. Add more water if the sauce is thickening too much. Meanwhile preheat your grill.
- Season the panga fillets and place on top of the pan. Top with the feta and a drizzling of olive oil. Place under the grill for 3-4 minutes until the fish flakes. Sprinkle with the spring onions, serve and enjoy!
