Good morning! Today, I’m bringing you another inspiring recipe from Blue Apron, one of my favorite blog partners. I have an offer for those of you who have yet to try it: the first 50 readers will get $40 off their first two weeks of Blue Apron orders.
What I love about Blue Apron is you can start, skip, and stop at any time. I keep my account active and schedule weeks when they are convenient, so we get a little dose of Blue Apron each month. We eat the best those weeks! I always choose the Family Plan because the portions are plentiful, so we have enough for two adults, a 5-year-old, and leftovers. Especially on nights when we don’t have Mazen, we often eat the dinner two nights in a row. It’s great to cook once and eat twice. That’s what we did with this recipe.

This recipe was one of my very favorites we have made, so I chose it to share with you all. The day I made it I had it for both lunch and dinner! The fish is well seasoned and topped with a caper-studded buttery sauce. And I loved how the vegetables and orzo combined into one hearty side, bound together with one of my very favorite ingredients: crème fraîche!
The first step was to prep the ingredients. I enjoy doing this all at once, cooking-show style, because it streamlines the cooking part of the recipe so well.
While the orzo bubbled away in a big pot, I cooked the veggies together with olive oil, chopped garlic, salt, and pepper.
Meanwhile I seasoned and coated the fish.
When the veggies were cooked and orzo drained, I tossed them all together with that yummy crème fraîche. This dish had such pretty colors!
Next, I cooked the fish and made the sauce in the same pan. A lemon-caper-butter sauce is one of my favorite fish toppers. I can smell it through the screen!
This made such a lovely all-in-one meal.
