Baked Orange Roughy

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.

    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.
