Prep/Total: 25-30 min.
Yield: 4 servings
4 fresh or frozen orange roughy fillets, thawed (5 oz. each)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten
1 cup finely chopped walnuts, pecans, or a mixture of the two
3 Tbs. seasoned bread crumbs
1 Tbs. sesame seeds
1 Tbs. dried parsley flakes
2 Tbs. butter
1/4 cup honey
1 1/2 tsp. soy sauce
Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper. Place flour and egg in separate shallow bowls. In another shallow bowl, combine walnuts, bread crumbs, sesame seeds, and parsley. Dip fish in flour, egg, then walnut mixture.
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook fish in butter in batches for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
In a small bowl, whisk honey and soy sauce; serve with fish.

- We only used half of the sauce, so you may consider reducing the amount you make.
- Orange roughy is low in calories and fat and has a very mild flavor. So good!
- The recipe suggests using flounder or sole if you can't find orange roughy.
I made it for dinner this evening. It was delicious. I dipped the fish in the egg a second time after the flour. The nut mixture stuck to the filet better. Fast, easy, yummy!ReplyDelete
