Found this in my local market and substituted the Orange Roughy with Tilapia. Excellent choice! I serve this with steamed asparagus over a bed of steamed spinach.

I used some basil butter I had made with basil from the garden, and frozen. This dish turned out very nice - simple but elegant, and quick to make! Thanks for sharing!

So easy and my husband went on and on and on about how great it was. I left off the cheese even and it was just fantastic

I made this recipe to the letter and liked it a lot. I don't like to try and 'healthy up' other people's recipes so unless I really hate a particular ingredient I'll follow it to the letter.
