    I've made this multiple times, but usually with Tilapia. It's a fantastic recipe and works both on the grill or in the oven. I usually halve it, which is totally fine. I love that this is so flavorful and doesn't involve breading which I don't want all the time!

    The marinade in this recipe is delicious. We couldn't find orange roughy fillets, so we substituted halibut ? (I can't remember exactly). I sprayed our grill with nonstick spray but it was still a little sticky so maybe I'll use a foil packet method next time.
