"My family loved this dish. I couldn't find Orange Roughy fillets at our grocers, so I substitued Alaskan Cod instead. It worked beautifully. I did tweak the recipe with a dash of red pepper flakes, and a tsp. of minced garlic added near the beginning. Overall this was just delicious, and I've already added this recipe to my family favorites."
