  • Place the orange roughy filets on the broiler pan and squeeze the lemon over the top of the fish. Broil the filets in the preheated oven for about 6 to 8 minutes.

  • Combine parmesan, butter, dijionnaise, garlic, and salt in a small bowl. Remove the fish from the oven and spread the cheese mixture on top of the filets. Sprinkle with paprika. Broil until the topping is lightly browned and the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 3 minutes.

Wowie this was amazing!! I completely left out the butter to make it healthier and it was still just totally yummy. We also used half Miracle Whip (instead of mayo) and half regular mustard (we don't like dijon). This is so light and fresh and flavorful and I highly recommend it. YUM! Read More

This recipe is really good if you want to somewhat camouflage the taste of the fish. My husband called it a 'Crab Imperial for Fish'. Probably would not make it again as we don't like heavy sauces for seafood - but I can see the appeal for others. I will say that the reviews on this site piqued my interest about endangered fish. I had no idea that Orange Roughy was amongst those - no wonder it has been more and more difficult to find. It is worth doing some research regarding other species. For instance others to avoid include Red Snapper Chilean Sea Bass and Atlantic Salmon just to name a few. Hard to figure out what to and what not to eat these days:) Read More

This is a scrumptious way to serve orange roughy - I didn't change a thing. Make sure you have it at least six inches from the broiler because otherwise it will start smoking like crazy. I give it 5 stars for taste but took away one star overall for high fat content and calories. Read More

Delicious! Yum yum yum. Next time though I will use much less mayo in the dijonaisse and more dijon to make up for it. I also won't add any salt and not quite as much parmesan. Hopefully that still turns out as tasty because it was great but seemed a little too "greasy". Read More

This is wonderfully easy FAST and fool-proof! This recipe can be used on any light flavored fish very well. I actually broiled some bay scallops and sprinkled them on top of the fish for an extra dimension of sea-food:-) Orange Roughy is a delicious fish with a light and buttery flavor. The fish guy at Wild Oats said that their population is weak which is why Wild Oats doesn't sell them anymore. He recommended Cod as substitute. Whenever I can get some Orange Roughy I love to use this recipe but Cod is good as well. Read More
