My mom gave me this recipe and it is very easy to prepare. The citrus sauce makes it a refreshing and flavorful dish. Buy 1/2 inch thick orange roughy filets.

My teenage son and husband LOVED this. They don't care for breading so I didn't flour it first, just pan fried it... Also I did not have green onions or lime juice.. so I made it with 4TBSP lemon and 2TBSP orange juice. They felt this was better than restaurant quality.

Delightful...I also bumped up the orange juice and added a TBSP of Teriyaki sauce. I used fresh basil instead of parsley. I also doubled the sauce and served it with brown rice and broccoli. I poured the sauce over the rice and broc and sprinkled with slivered almonds. Excellent dish!

This recipe is FANTASTIC! It was so quick and easy. I wasn't sure before I made it if I would like the blend of juices with the garlic and onion, but it was just wonderful. It tastes like something you'd pay big bucks for in a fancy restaurant and is the dish I would serve to friends that I wanted to impress.
