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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. In a small bowl, combine margarine, basil and lemon pepper.
  3. Place fish on a greased broiler pan and spread 1/2 of the margarine mixture over the fillets.
  4. Broil about 5-8 inches away from heat for about 5 minutes. Turn the fillets over and spread the remaining margarine mixture on them and top with lemon slices.
  5. Broil for another 5 minutes or until fish can be flaked with a fork.

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.
