Broiled Orange Roughy

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by mersaydees

Based on a recipe from Taste of Home’s Low-Carb Recipes. The intro states, “The fillets are flaky, moist and mildly flavored. They can be broiled in the oven, but I often cook them on our outdoor grill instead to cut down on kitchen cleanup.”

Very delicious and quick recipe! I had never cooked fish before, so I was shocked when it came out perfect! I used tilapia instead of the orange roughy and substituted 3 tbsp of olive oil for the butter. Definitely making it again!
