I HATE FISH. Hubby loves fish. He had a heart attack and it's good for him to eat fish. I tried being supportive to him and setting a good example for the kids in the process. Didn't work out so well. Me sitting there forcing the stuff down with my nose plugged like it was bad medicine. So I make this for them, and I have chicken. Looks somewhat similar, and still sets that good example.... You can use any white fish for this.

Love it! Just a note if Orange Roughy is expensive and hard to find in your area - like mine. Try using Basa - it is very close to Roughy in moisture and texture.

I adore Orange Roughy but sometimes it tends to have a stronger taste than I care for. The ingredients in this recipe made all the difference and will now become one of my favorites. Thanks so much for sharing.
