Italian seasoned bread crumbs
grated Parmesan cheese
grated Romano cheese
salt, or to taste
orange roughy fillets
chopped fresh parsley
We've been making orange roughy similar to this for years. To make this recipe even healthier, I skip the butter step. Then I sprinkle the fillets with garlic salt and press them into equal parts seasoned bread crumbs and parm cheese (I actually prefer the stuff in the green jar over real, for this dish). Bake on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with a bit of spray. Sometimes we spritz the tops of the fillets with spray, which makes the coating a little crispy. My husband is NOT a fish eater, but he requests this dish at least once a month. You will be surprised how tasty this is!
This was just okay for us - kind of a "sleepy" dish. Also, most Italians, like me, generally don't add any cheese to seafood dishes and while I do enjoy it in certain dishes, I didn't particularly care for it in this one. The boldly flavored cheeses are a little TOO bold for the delicately flavored fish. I used grouper filets and because I didn't want all that bread crumb coating I just sprinkled some over just the top of the filets, then drizzled them with melted butter. We ate our dinner, but it was without enthusiam.
I have made this recipe many times with great results. I keep frozen orange roughy from wholesale club on hand because everyone, esp. my 9 yr old, loves it. To save time I do not thaw, and simply place the ingredients on top of the fish (must bake longer). I substitute olive oil for butter, do not use the salt, and add fresh lemon slices. Very moist & tasty! Have also used tilapia, but prefer orange roughy.
YUM! I used frozen mahi mahi and soaked them in milk for about a half hour to get rid of the fishy taste. My seafood-hating husband liked this too. Will make again!
This dish added versatility to my fish cuisine. For me, it was better than always frying or baking plain using the usual seasonings. Unlike the previous rater, this dish is a keeper. Is it 5-star chef, gourmet delicious?...probably not, but like most recipes on this site, it's home-style, family friendly and perfect for the busy professional like myself.
Wonderful flavor and very low fat, as I only needed a tiny bit more than 1 T. olove oil instead of the butter. My 11-year-old son ate three portions, and our daughter (13) had seconds. A real hit for this household. Will definitely make it again. Thanks!
My husband and I loved this-
YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY - a great new way to enjoy fish! I just sprayed the fish with olive oil then coated it and it cooked up flakey and full of flavor - no fishy taste at all! To complete the meal I saute' some squash, zucchini, mushrooms and onions while the fish cooked and it was a great meal. My husband is not a fish lover and he went for seconds!
