Orange Roughy Veracruz

Top Review by Spencer Simmons

This dish was prepared and plated in about 45 minutes (including prep time) and was very easy to make. We made the dish just as the recipe read with no substitutions. For the ground red pepper we used cayenne (go very light lest it be too hot). I will admit that we bumped the amount of garlic up a bit to about 3 cloves chopped.
