Orange roughy fillets with a citrus twist. Very quick to prepare.
Ok...I overcooked it.....but that's not why the 3 stars.....lacked flavor. In addition to the recipe ingredients, I added some fresh lemon zest and some garlic powder right before baking .....still lacking. Served with fresh baby spinach sauteed in olive oil and fresh garlic ....that I thought saved the meal. I did use cod instead of roughy. Prolly wont make again ...sorry.Read More
I used 2 tbsp orange juice and 1 tbsp lemon juice (not fresh squeezed), and the flavor was still fantastic. Very light and delicious! We enjoy having this with French Green Beans from this site.
Speedy, excellent, healthy entree. Use plenty of fresh-squeezed orange and lemon juice (also try lime...very good). The juice will reduce in the frying pan to form a wonderful subtle-flavored sauce. Don't use store-bought orange juice...when reduced it tastes much too strong, almost like marmalade, and will take away from the natural flavor of the fish.
Great base recipe. I tweaked it a bit. First I added Old Bay, salt and ground black pepper to all purpose flour and coated fish in it. Used 3 clementines (only oranges I had), half lemon and quarter of a lime. Added fresh lemon basil (had no lemon pepper) with some cilantro to the juice before pouring it over the fish in the skillet. Added fresh garlic to the oil and a little lemon basil too prior to putting fish in it. Added ground peppercorns to fish in the pan. Great sauce, can also use on tilapia. Will double the juice contents if using clementines again as I would've liked more of the sauce - used 2 fillets (approx 1lb).
Easy recipe. Great way to prepare fish. I didn't have an orange but I did have some dried orange peel which worked great in place of the juice. I look forward to trying this with fresh caught crappie, bass, and catfish we are able to catch from the nearby lakes.
Excellent Recipe. I will make this again.
This was a nice light sauce on a delicious fish. So sad that it's my last serving of orange roughy. I didn't realize that it was overharvested until I looked for a recipe for the fish that was already in my freezer. Guess I can always prepare another fish this way, perhaps tilapia as others suggested?
This was delicious! It literally took 5 minutes from start to finish. It is worth a try, and I will make this again for sure.
Can't beat this recipe for speed of preparation, great flavor, low calories. Very good!
it was ok, nothing that great about the recipe
A quick and delicious dinner for a hectic evening.
Really, really good. Nice flavor in a light sauce. My husband isn't a big fish fan but he really liked this. Very fast and healthy.
This recipe is delicious! I had never heard of Orange Roughy before until I went to the grocery store looking for salmon and they were out. The guy at the fish counter told me about this fish and gave me a garlic recipe (verbally), which I forgot once I got home. I looked up Orange Roughy on here and found this recipe! My husband LOVES this recipe and it is my go-to recipe because it is so quick an easy, and there is virtually no clean-up. I use orange juice (rather than an orange)and lemon juice from a container (rather than a lemon), and lemon pepper, and that is it! I have made this recipe for friends and family and it has been a hit. Thank you for sharing your recipe, it has been added to mine, and is now one of my staple recipes!
I tried this recipe last night and the flavors are mind blowing. I used 2 pieces of tilapia and the juice from 1 lemon, 1 lime, 1 orange and lemon pepper Mrs. Dash. I paired it with sauteed bok choy and brown rice. Really a quick tasty meal.
This was good but nothing special. It works with any mild white fish. I used Cod.
I never cooked orange roughy before and was looking for a recipe and came across this one. I wish I could rate it higher - it was perfect! I didn't have any fresh oranges or lemons so I just used juice I had on hand and it was great. I also have tried this on shrimp and that worked well too. Garnish with a slice of orange and it looks so pretty on the plate too! Thank you for sharing! :)
This is a very tasty, healthy and unusual sauce for fish. It was easy and quick to make. My husband and I enjoyed this recipe very much. I used orange juice with pulp, lemon and 1 lime. I will definitely make this again.
I'm not a big fish fan, but I liked this. I was surprised that my fish-loving husband thought it was too tart. I didn't have any fresh lemons, so used bottled and seasoned with a little S&P. Would make again, but maybe cut down on the lemon juice & DEFINITELY use fresh.
We were looking for a healthy but flavorful way of enjoying orange roughy and this was perfect! We loved it and it will a regular in our rotation. May follow others suggestions and try with lime juice and cilantro also.

Very nice, easy, tasty recipe. I baked the orange roughy rather than fried it. The flavor of the fish really stood out. Lime juice instead of lemon juice might be a bit tastier.
Super quick, easy and delicious!!
Explosive taste buds. This was very healthy and very tasty. I didn't have an orange so I used 2 Tbsp. orange concentrate. I put the lemon pepper on the fillets and let them set for 10 minutes and then fried in a little bit of olive oil on med/high. After browning both sides, I put on the lemon/orange sauce and cooked on medium to reduce the liquid. It was so excellent and I served it with quinoa/mushroom dish from this site. The fish had a beautiful orange glaze on it. They complimented each other so well. One of my favorite healthy dinners!
Rate the recipe, not the fish.... Orange roughy probably is not the best choice, but not 'endangered'... Except in Australia.... I suggest swai...
This recipe was pretty good but not really memorable in my book. I used wild whitefish fillets instead of orange roughy and followed the recipe as written, although I found I had so much juice that it was more like pour the juice over rather than drizzle. I turned my fillets partway through and they cooked very nicely in the citrus. I think next time I will remove the fish and then reduce the pan juices, hoping for more of a syrup. I'll also add cilantro like someone else mentioned. Nice and healthy, that's for sure!
I made this recipe in an "emergency" situation where I found myself with some roughy on hand and no plan for how to fix it. Seems most other fish recipes on this site called for heavy cream, which I didn't have. I used one whole (but very small) orange, one whole lemon and half a lime. This made quite a bit of juice for three very good sized filets. The juice took a bit to reduce down but by the time it reduced, the fish was done so no problem there. Seasoned the fish with Old Bay, some dried dill weed and black pepper (as I didn't have the lemon pepper on hand either). I was very pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I was worried it would be dull, but it really had a good amount of flavor without overpowering the fish. FYI, I used Trader Joe's white roughy (found in the freezer section)which is simply divine and a must try if you haven't had it yet. This dish was perfect for a summer night dinner. My husband said he could easily use this sauce for shore lunches on his next fishing trip with the guys.
This Was Very Good And Easy. The Only Changes I Made Where To Cook Up 12oz Frozen Orange Roughy. When The Fish Was Done Cooking I Placed It On A Plate And I Added A Small Amount Of Argo Gravy Thickner To The Orange And Lemon Sauce, To Thicking A Little. And Poured It Over The Fish. This Recipe Was Good And Very Easy. Side Dish Was Frozen Creamed Spinach , And I Had A Fast, Easy, Healthy Meal. With Little Clean Up (Yeah) Thank You So Much From Florida!!
This was surprisingly very good! It is an easy and healthy weeknight meal and I will def be making it again. Thanks for the recipe!
The recipe was great. I use a lot of the recipes here and modify to accommodate my weight watchers diet.
This was extremely easy to make and really good. I did add a couple of sprinkles of rosemary to it ans some asparagus in the pan with it, and it was delicious. I actually think I will start cooking my asparagus this way instead of the garlic all the time
Fantastic with any type of flaky white fish, i.e. flounder, tilapia, even grouper. I like to heat the oil in a large saute pan, cook the fish about 4 minutes over med-high heat until just browning, then flip, pour the juice over it, cover and remove for heat. In about 5 minutes, it's perfect every time. The 'sauce' is fantastic over rice, quinoa or couscous straight up, reduced or thickened with a little corn starch. Works great with lemon or lime juice, whatever's on hand. Love this recipe and it's so simple even the kids can make it. Thank you!!!
I followed the recipe exactly. It was honestly the best fish dinner I've ever had. - and I actually made it myself! This was the first recipe I've tried from this website. It was so good and so easy to make. If I can have this recipe turn out so wonderfully well, anyone can! :) Thanks for sharing this recipe. ~I'll be making this often!
Very Good. Very Simple and great flavor.
This was a great recipe. I couldn't find orange roughy, so I substituted with tilapia. It turned out great. The first time I made the recipe, I used the lemon pepper seasoning and it was kind of bland, so this time I used Montreal chicken seasoning. It was absolutely wonderful. My guests loved the recipe. The next evening I made fish tacos with the left overs and added creole seasoning. Yummy!!!!!
fresh and light tasting -- this is the best way to prepare orange roughy. i added a splash of lime juice as well.
One word for this one. WONDERFUL
Easy, delicious, and healthy. Few dishes meet all three requirements as well as this one!
Absolutely excellent recipe!!!! And especially with a bunch of "Orange Roughy" The sauce completely complimented the fish.
This recipe was phenomenal! We're not big fish easters in our house, but all 4 of us LOVED this. I will be making this again & again. Thanks so much!!!
I used cod since orange roughy is endangered. I looked up what else to use instead, and cod was one of the options. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but the favors just didn't taste that good. Maybe it was the fish itself, Idk. I won't make again.
This is super easy and the sauce is very tasty. I used frozen roughy fillets and I think I need to try it again with fresh...no fault of the recipe, simply the fish. I would use this sauce on other mile fillets in a heartbeat. Thanks for the recipe.
awesome recipe!! made it exactly as recipe calls for.
It has a subtle yet delicious flavor. Best to serve with rice and steamed veggies to bring out the flavor in the fish. The recipe is extremely simple but does the trick! Great for a quick meal.
Very good, I added a little garlic, very moist and delicious.will definitely make again
So easy to prepare! Sauce was delicious, although I might add a little butter to it next time around. Of course that just adds fat and defeats my goal of fixing low-fat healthy recipes!
Great, healthy, easy. I used 2 Tablespoons orange juice and 1 Tablespoon lemon juice instead of the fresh orange and lemon. Not a lot of sauce, but enough for good flavor. Dinner was ready in literally 10 minutes!
great dish! i added 1T of butter and used salt/pepper to season. husband loved it and he usually uses tartar sauce!
Very good, but I think it needs a little more seasoning. It was a little blah. I ended up adding some basil, garlic, and a little seasoned salt. Other than that it was a good start to an excellent meal.
easy and flavorful
It was definitely easy and quick to make. But my husband and I thought it was a bit on the plain side.
I've made this a couple times now...and it works with fresh or bottled juices! Easy, and light....for a nice, tasty, healthy meal.
Delicious! Followed the recipe exactly. Served the leftover fish the next night as fish tacos. Was also delicious! Thank you for this quick, easy and tasty recipe!
This came out perfect. I didn't use fresh fruit; just lemon juice and reduced acid orange juice and it came out terrific. My husband who loves flavor loved it as well.
I have made this twice; the first time with Minneola tangerine, the second with navel orange. My husband did not get to taste it the first time, my parents and I loved it. I was afraid my husband would not like it since he is a hard core fishy fish lover, but he did! The preparation is a cinch, the flavor is fresh and delightful. This is a refreshing change from the old reliable dill or Old Bay spices.
Very good compliment to orange roughy indeed. Will definitely make again!
Fish is not my favorite thing at all, but I am trying to eat healthier. I tried this recipe and LOVED IT!!! Like everyone said it is easy and totally yummy!!!
This was so good; even my picky kids liked it.
Excellent--Easy--Enjoyed by Everyone!!
This was kind of gross! I was surprised.
This recipe was very simple and tasty. Like others suggested I floured the filets first. I also sauted some garlic in the oil first before putting in the fish. I will make it again.
Love it! The fish is so moist and the taste is light so it does not cover the taste of the fish.
This recipe was absolutely phenomenal! It was easily made, and was quite quick. I followed the recipe here exactly, continually spooning the lemon-orange juice-lemon pepper mixture in the skillet back over the fish as it cooked, and had just enough juice left over. Thanks for the fabulous recipe!
This was delicious!! I did tweak it a little bit-I dredged the fillets in seasoned flour, sauteed them in the olive oil until golden, then added the citrus juices and let it cook a bit. I also cut out the dark fish fles before cooking as I find that is what gives it a strong or fishy taste.
It was good. Not great. It was easy, convenient and cheap. Cub foods has frozen wild caught Orange Roughy from Canada, nice. I can't give it 5 stars because it's not a restaurant quality recipe. It's adequate, not complex or mouthwatering, but it's good. I'd make it again because it's healthy and convenient and my UBER-picky 4 year old loved it.
Quick and easy! Simple and yummy.
I didn't think I was good at cooking fish, but this recipe made me change my mind. It was so easy. You've got to try it!
Fantastic!! Light, sweet and just plain easy. I marinated it for an hour and poured it all into a pan for about 6-8 minutes. Yummy!
I did not know orange roughy was being overfished, so I am using the rest of my frozen roughy and will purchase another white fish to make this yummy recipe again. I hope it tastes as good with tilapia.
My co-worker and I used this recipe on the ship we work at and the crew loved it. Insted of pouring the juice onto the fish we let it marinade in it for about an hour. Im sure more time would have made it even better.
Vary easy to prepare, however, flavor was not to my liking.
Very easy!! I didnt have orange roughy so i used flounder instead, flounder is a thinner fish so i used less orange and lemon and it still came out very good. I got my husband who will not eat fish to eat this so that was great.
This was most wondrous! Excellent flavor, easy to prepare. My wife, who does not normally enjoy fish, loved it. I highly recommend this recipe.
Amazingly simple and quick... great for working moms. Only change I made is used lime instead of lemon. Delicious!
Not good at all. The combinations of flavors were not complementary.
My family loved this--even the non-fish lovers. I sauteed some shallots before adding the fish and juices. We'll definitely make this one again!
It turned out moist and delicate but I had to add a little more seasoning because I new it would be bland otherwise. I added freshly grated sea salt, some fresh lemon basil and fresh dill, also a little more freshly ground pepper. I really enjoyed it.
it was quick and very delicious
A hit with the whole family. Served with Almond Currant Rice from this site and they paired well.
A very quick, easy, and tasty way to prepare your fish! It's great with a variety of white fish, whichever you have on hand. I brought a ton of ripe lemons and oranges home from a Florida trip and this was a good way to use some instead of just making juice!
Very good, quick and easy. I think any fish can be subsistuted for the roughy.
I baked it instead of using the skillet. I put it in a 9"x13" dish, some olive oil on the bottom, baked at 350 for about 20+ minutes, but don't over cook or it gets too dry, better to be moist. It was delicious! Absolutely perfect!
So easy and quick! Light and yummy
This was so simple and quick and had terrific flavor. I love fish, but orange roughy in particular has always been a favorite. The recipe doesn't specify how much lemon or orange to use. I used a medium lemon and large orange and thought it was perfect. You won't be dissapointed with this recipe.
Absolutely delicious simple sauce. I made the sauce with a little marjoram, sage, and a touch of butter in a pot and reduced it a bit. I cooked the fish on the grill for a few minutes per side, basting it with the sauce. Rave reviewsfrom all.
Quick and easy to prepare. I added cilantro to the fish as it finished frying in the pan and it turned out great! Definitely don't skimp on the lemon and orange juices. It's a great way to get in your helping of fish.
This was tastey but didn't make enough sauce. I liked it but my husband didn't. I usually make mine with just lemon so I believe it may have been a little too flavorful for him.
Super easy and quick. A very nice, light and refreshing flavored fish recipe.
easy and good
My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. I had the orange roughy and didn't know what to do with it. So I checked out this site for something quick, easy and ingredients that I had on hand. I also used orange juice and lemon juice. My kids did not like the fish. They usually eat it (not so much because they love it) but because they have to have a little bit. But tonight they wouldn't eat it. I don't know why. I think the citrus was a bit much for them. I will definitely make this for my husband and myself again!
Not a fish lover, but I may be now! This was fabulous..no fishy taste & I added a little lime juice too! Fast, easy & yummy!!
the fish was so fresh and zesty and so very easy to prepare!
My husband and son said this tastes as good as a dish from a high end restaurant! Using homestyle type orange juice instead of juicing an orange makes this a very quick and easy recipe.
We had this tonight, and my husband said....this is a keeper!! So good. It was very light and tasty.
Wow! A perfect combination of sweet-citris and fish. I hate fish, but eat it for health reasons, and now I will look forward to eating it. I used a large naval orange (juiced) and 1/4 C of commercial lemon juice. It took much longer for my fillet to cook...about fifteen minutes, which was nice, because the juices thickened up real nice and stuck to the fish better. I served it with brown rice, green beans, and vinegared-tomato slices. Yum, Yum!
I did not like this at all. Maybe I just don't like Orange Roughy.
I really don't like fish but I loved this recipe. I used 1/2 a lemon and a navel orange! I'm definately making this again.
The plan was to use it on fish but I did not I used it on chicken in the frying pan and it turned out pretty good. I let the chicken get brown very tasty
fresh fish is the way to go but even with frozen, it was tasty and quick. My boys loved it.
This was moist & tender. I couldn't believe how good this turned out. I never thought it would be this delicious. My husband said it was over the top. This is definitely a keeper.
Made this using Cod and it was so easy and delicious. Served with Pan-Fried Asparagus from this site. In fact, I made the fish in the same pan I used for the Asparagus. Will be making again!
