"I personally did not care for the sauce. It was just too orange tasting for me. It was edible but not something I would make again."

"This was absolutely outstanding! It looked like a dish served by a professional and tasted like it too! We used Orange Roughy, substitutes garlic for the shallots and used raspberry lemonade instead of OJ (we did not have shallots or OJ). This will definitely be made again and again!!!"
