READY IN: 1hr 10mins

Tasty, healthy and easy! The spicy tomato-orange sauce simmers for 20 minutes, tops whitefish fillets, and bakes for another half-hour. Very fresh and delicious served with my Mexican Saffron Rojo Rice and a cool salad!

Fast and easy to make. The whole family loved it. I believe the sauce would be nice on chicken also.
