Baked Fish Recipe: Orange Roughy

This baked fish recipe calls for orange roughy, but any white fish with a thick flesh will work well.

Some people don’t want to use orange roughy because it has been quite overfished around the world, so just substitute another fish, like haddock, catfish or cod.

This wonderful orange roughy recipe was shared by Helen from Canada. She says: My family loves Orange Roughy. It is a very “meaty” tasting fish. You can use orange juice in place of lemon if you prefer. This dish goes well with hot white, brown or wild rice.

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
