We think the champagne dressing in this recipe is yummy on almost anything, but it’s excellent with this lovely fish. The tilapia is perfect in tacos, too! —Bernadette Bennett, Waco, TX

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 14, 2014

"I have to admit - I was skeptical. The marinade ingredients seemed random, like they didn't really go together. But I had all of them on hand so thought I'd give it a try. My husband and I LOVED it. So much flavor, and yet perfect for a delicate fish. Will make again and again!"

"Very simple and delicious. Used Orange Roughy since that's what I had and is our favorite. One of the best fish recipes I've tried."
