Baked Orange Roughy

"Orange roughy is one of my favorite fish for its sweet flavor. I eat fish quite regularly and have been trying to get my roommate to eat it too. She actually liked this recipe (which basically means that it's not as 'fishy')!"

    Used this recipe last evening. Great flavor and very easy. I substituted Chardonnay for the milk. I used a narrow baking dish just wide enough for two fillets side by side so I reduced the liquid from 1/3 cup to 1/4 cup. I used finely chopped garlic and the flavor was great. I diced whole tomatoes, but I imagine you could use drained canned diced tomatoes. I also used dried parsley because I was out of fresh. I just normally prefer fresh to dried seasonings. Next time I would reduce oven temperature to 400 degrees and bake for 20 minutes. I might try this recipe with Cod fillets next time. Since they are normally thicker than roughy, I would probably bump up the liquid to 1/3 cup. A nice variation might also be using crushed Panko.

    Sounds scrumptious but just wondering how the milk affects the fish?

    it was excellent as written but i added more seasoning and also poured white wine with whole mik and juice of fresh lemon. It was a very good recipe i dont eat much baked fish i eat mostly fried but this will now be a regular staple for me

    Wonderful! I made this for a quick lunch, and I'm so glad I did. We really enjoyed this. My kids didn't want the breadcrumb coating on top, so I got more than my share (and that's a good thing with this recipe). The crumb topping added such a wonderful texture and flavor to the fish. I had a difficult time finding orange roughy (and even then, all I could get was frozen). So I think next time I will try this with fresh tilapia fillets, which is a little easier to find in the markets near me. Thank you for sharing your recipe, poo235.

    This is a great recipe! I followed the recipe but sauteed the onion in a little butter (to make sure it cooked through) and used Italian breadcrumbs (what I had on hand). A little squeeze of fresh lemon would be a great addition but it was still yummy without it. I have already recommended this and will make this again.

    This was just sooo delicious!!! Quick, simple and truly extraordinary. Used minced garlic instead of pressed, and fresh home grown tomatoes. Light and flavorful. Definetly a keeper!! This is going into my favorite recipe binder. Yummy!!!
