Trying to get my husband to eat fish any other way than fried has been a challenge. We all thought this was delicious and it was easy on the cook (that's me) because it was simple to make. The fillets were tender and the seasoning was slightly spicy but not overdone. Thanks Nurse Di, for another great recipe.

This was my very first attempt at making any kind of fish (besides canned tuna) and it does not get any quicker or easier than this. The seasonings were very good and I will make it again. Thanks

Orange roughy is my favorite fish. Another spice to try on it is oregano. I use salt, pepper, and oregano. I don't even use butter because the fish has a rich, buttery flavor of its own.
