Great flavour combination. The fish was light and flaky, colours were great and the cheese a perfect topping. Thanks for posting Bev.

Oh, YUUMMMM! I made this with Tilapia instead of the orange roughy and it was absolutely decadent! Did not take long do make either, even for a crowd.

AWESOME!!!! Everyone in the family loved this recipe. I followed the recipe but doubled the sauce to drizzle it over angel hair pasta.
