    Quick & simple. I followed the recipe and used fresh Albacore. I will make this again. YUM.

    Nice different flavor. Will use again as a change of pace to lemon!

    This was very easy and very delicious.. I followed the recipe almost exactly, but used store bought UN-seasoned bread crumbs instead. My Husband loved it and so did I! A nice change from the lemon I usually put in my baked fish. I also seasoned the the breadcrumbs with approx. I tsp kosher salt & fresh ground pepper, and browned the mixture before spreading on the fish. (another poster had mistakenly added the juice to the bread crumbs), and I would like to stress the part of the recipe that says (POUR JUICE OVER THE FISH AFTER THE BREADCRUMBS) . What a nice & different surprise this dish was!! Will make again & again

    I cannot award stars as I am not sure what went wrong. I used frozen sole and I think it had a slight after taste that sometimes frozen fish has. I cut the recipe back to two servings. When the crumbs were mixed with the butter and orange juice they were clumped together (I did measure when I cut back the recipe) i could not sprinkle them I had to spread them with a knife. I love garlic but did not care for the combination with the orange for the sole. This recipe has received two 5 star reviews so I suspect the problem is not with the recipe but rather this cook. and the chosen fish. Sorry Doreen the recipe did not work for me.

    Chris and I REALLY loved this recipe. We used the zest of the whole orange, and it wasn't at all fact, it was very subtle, and didn't take away from the true flavor of the fish. Each bite would have these little bursts of orange flavor from the zest, and it was just wonderful!!! We used tilapia filets, and followed the recipe as written. This was incredibly quick and easy to prepare, and baked in 20 minutes. We had this with steamed broccoli and rice, and we couldn't be more pleased...thank you so much for this delicious recipe..we'll be making it many times in the future--this is definitely a 5 star keeper!
