At my husband's company christmas party every year, they serve this dish. it is SO good and since this is the only recipe for it on recipezaar, i used this to try to make it. PERFECT! this was sooooo good i was mad that i only made enough for each of us to only have 1. Flavorful, moist, delicious! Thanks for sharing your recipe!Reply
This is an amazing dish that doesn't take that long to prepare but really dresses up Orange Roughy and was a great way to use some crab that I had gotten at Sam's. My son didn't like it. He is not a fan of green peppers no matter how finely chopped but DH and I loved it. I had some rather small fillets of Orange Roughy and added in a single fillet of talapia and this seemed to work out well. I may cut back on the Old Bay just slightly to reduce the saltiness maybe to 1 1/2 tsp.Reply
