Expert Tips

Orange roughy hails from New Zealand. Low-fat and firm-fleshed, it has a mild flavor and is available in most supermarkets.

Preheating the pan before adding the fish helps to create a crisp bottom crust.

This versatile coating is delicious with any mild-flavored fish, such as cod, sole, catfish or walleye.
