Orange Roughy with Tartar Sauce Recipe

You’ll never buy tartar sauce again once you’ve tasted Michelle’s super-easy recipe! Wrapped in a foil packet, her fish comes out moist, flaky and perfect every time—and cleanup is a cinch. “I love to serve this with my favorite baked beans and fried potatoes.” Michelle Stromko - Forest Hill, Maryland
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

  • 1. Place three fillets on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. square); repeat with remaining fillets. Sprinkle fish with seasoning; dot with butter.
  • 2. Fold foil around fish and seal tightly. Grill packets, covered, over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.
