Orange Roughy in Garlic Butter

"I made this up one night when I had some fresh fish, and not too much in the fridge that I could add to it. I served it with garlic & parmesan couscous, peas, and a salad."

    I was asked to put this on the regular menu rotation (which is a big deal considering the men in the family aren't big on fish). I prepared it as specified, only I added a little lemon pepper to give it a little zip. It was perfect!

    Wonderful dish! I prepared this with my recipe for Roasted Potatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, and Green Beans. The flavors went together perfectly. Thanks for posting!

    My husband doesn't like to eat fish so when I find a fish dish he says is good it is worth 5 stars. This was a easy and tasty dish . Made as written. Thanks Texas Kelly. Bullwinkle


<p>I am not a very interesting person. I like to cook, I like to eat, and I love my husband Rick and my son Hugh. Thats pretty much it when it comes to me, that and an obsession for cats, especially our 2, Bunny &amp; Bindy Sue. We live in Lake Dallas, TX, and have been married since August 16th, 2003. Hugh was born October 19th, 2009. Rick and I met on the internet in September 2001, and when we were married I moved from NJ where I grew up, to the big, scary, strange city of Dallas. There are things I like about Dallas and things I don't. I am definitely homesick for some real NY style pizza.</p>
