Italian Orange Roughy

Total Time

Prep: 5 min. + marinating Cook: 5 min.


4 servings

"My family loves this moist and tender fish swimming in a flavorful sauce," writes Alice Mashek of Schaumburg, Illinois. "It's easy to marinate first, then cook quickly in the microwave.


  • 1 pound orange roughy fillets
  • 1/2 cup tomato juice
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper


  1. Place fish fillets in a shallow 2-qt. microwave-safe dish, positioning the thickest portion of fish toward the outside edges. In a small bowl, combine the tomato juice, vinegar and salad dressing mix; pour over fish. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle with onions and green pepper. Cover and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Turn fillets over; cook 1-3 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Let stand, covered, for 2 minutes.
