A crispy, crunchy crust and moist, tender fish make this recipe a winner. The dipping sauce is salty-sweet and pairs beautifully with walnuts. Taste of Home Test Kitchen - Greendale, Wisconsin


  • 4 orange roughy fillets (5 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 3 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
