Reviews for Lime-Marinated Orange Roughy
"Very nice, light flavor. I used tilapia. I might try using lemon juice next time,"
"Orange Roughy is now on the endangered species list so we used flounder and it was really good. Thanx for sharing."
"This was very good & I'm sure it would have been even better if I had marinated the fish for the suggested hour. I couldn't find orange roughy so used talipia instead. Make extra marinade & use it to season brown rice."
"Easy, quick & delicious - I will for sure make again."
