Baked Orange Roughy Recipe

I did some experimenting to come up with this recipe. It's quick and easy enough to prepare for the family after coming home from work, and tasty enough for company.

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

"Easy to make. The flavors don't compete, they compliment the fish. My whole family loved it, even the picky eater had seconds (unheard of!). I didn't even make the tarter sauce. I figured the recipe had enough flavor without it. I was right. I used Rice Krispees instead of cornflakes due to make it gluten-free."

"This is delicious! It is my favorite fish recipe. I don't usually like a lot of fish, and I could eat this several times a week! I usually use tilapia. The cornflakes help the breading be nice and crunchy. Great served with some asparagus or baked butternut squash. Yum!"

"This is the only way I make fish now. What I like is that it works great with so many fish! I've used it with tilapia, cod, halibut and...of course, orange roughy. I don't fix the tartar sauce as with only 1 using it(I don't like tartar sauces)more economical to simply buy. Great recipe, though."
