    Tried it with Haddock everybody loved it, the sauce is very delicious and blends well with the fish.  -  18 Apr 2012


    Sometimes Orange Roughy has a very fishy taste, but the tomatoes, spice and sherry add a unique flavor that compliments this meaty fish. I used stewed tomatoes rather than fresh tomatoes and the results were excellent!  -  23 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
