"My mom gave me this recipe and it is very easy to prepare. The citrus sauce makes it a refreshing and flavorful dish. Buy 1/2 inch thick orange roughy filets." — Karen B.

orange roughy fillets
1 1/2 tablespoons
fresh lime juice
chopped fresh parsley
thinly sliced green onion
My teenage son and husband LOVED this. They don't care for breading so I didn't flour it first, just pan fried it... Also I did not have green onions or lime juice.. so I made it with 4TBSP lemon and 2TBSP orange juice. They felt this was better than restaurant quality.
I love how the fish turned out but I didn't care for the sauce. Im so glad I tasted it before I poured in onto the fish. It was way sour for my liking. Will use this again for the fish.
Delightful...I also bumped up the orange juice and added a TBSP of Teriyaki sauce. I used fresh basil instead of parsley. I also doubled the sauce and served it with brown rice and broccoli. I poured the sauce over the rice and broc and sprinkled with slivered almonds. Excellent dish!
This recipe is FANTASTIC! It was so quick and easy. I wasn't sure before I made it if I would like the blend of juices with the garlic and onion, but it was just wonderful. It tastes like something you'd pay big bucks for in a fancy restaurant and is the dish I would serve to friends that I wanted to impress.
I substituted Tilapia and my husband says it's the best fish I ever made! Easy, delicious, wholesome recipe. I served it with asparagus and a rice pilaf -- yum!
Very tasty & perfect for dinner guests! It has a great presentation. I used tilapia instead of orange roughy. I also used the juice of half a lemon and 4 or 5 tblsp. of orange juice and the sauce was not too tart at all. Next time I may use PAM instead of oil to fry the fish. Also, I suggest doing the sauce in a separate pan from the fish and have them both going at the same time so that the sauce is ready as soon as the fish is done. This doesn't give the fish a chance to cool down at all or get soggy.
I gave this recipe four stars because I made a few modifications to the recipe. I didn't have any fresh orange juice, so I used a Tablespoon of frozen orange juice concentrate. I also added 1/2 or 1 tsp (I didn't measure!) of honey because I had read other reviews that said it was too bitter. It took away just a little of that bite from the citrus. It was really good! We used it with some Wild Alaskan Salmon that I seasoned with salt and pepper, seared on high heat, and then finished off in the oven. The citrus complimented the buttery salmon very nicely. I'm going to use the extra sauce over some asparagus tonight.
This was absolutely delish! The sauce was a bit tart, but I used the juice from one lemon, one lime, and one orange. (So I went heavier with the lemon than the recipe called for.) If you don't want it too tart, just use more orange juice. I also used shallots instead of the green onions. The entire cooking of the meal came together in under 10 minutes....amazing! Served it with rice and asparagus. It was such a light and refreshing fish recipe. Thanks for submitting it.
