Reviews for Baked Fish with Cheese Sauce for Two
"They didn't have orange roughy at our local grocery store...I was disappointed since this is my favorite fish, but we substituted it with cod. The sauce was delicious, the mustard gave it a nice tang! My husband loved it as well! Thank you, I will definitely be making this again!"
