When living in Mali, West Africa, I had Capitainne (a mild fish from the Niger River) at a restaurant, prepared in a similar way to this. I loved it! My version is with Orange Roughy liberally doused with marinara sauce, carrots, bell peppers and green onions. Very delicious served over cooked rice. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb orange roughy fillet
  • 1 (26 ounce) jarbertolli's marinara spaghetti sauce
  • 4 tablespoons white vinegar

  1. Combine 1/2 jar spaghetti sauce, vinegar and salad dressing mix; mix well.
  2. Pour 1/2 of sauce mixture into bottom of casserole dish.
  3. Place fish filets in casserole on top of sauce mixture. Position thickest portion of fish toward outer edges of casserole.
