Ummm, mmm! Baked Orange Roughy Spread with Horseradish ~ Dijon and Parmesan


The smooth pearly white meat of orange roughy is liked for its mild, delicate flavor as well as its ease of cooking.  It’s a great choice for those who don’t like the “fishy” taste of fish.




Orange roughy is native to the waters of Australia and New Zealand, and is a versatile fish that is highly adaptive to a vast array of recipes and seasonings.  

It can survive most cooking methods, with the moist, large flaked meat holding together well after cooking.

The fish is naturally low in cholesterol and fat ~ jam-packed with proteins and other vital nutrients ~ a healthy substitute for any lean meat.


 

A creamy spread of Dijon mustard, Parmesan, a little mayonnaise, and a hint of horseradish tops these baked fillets.  The fish was delicious — so simple to prepare — yet so tasty.  

I have to say ~ all these ingredients work together quite well ~ it's all about the delightful kick from the horseradish and Dijon mustard!


Baked Orange Roughy with Horseradish Dijon and Parmesan

Ingredients:

2 (6 ounce) orange roughy fillets
2 tablespoons lemon juice
½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons horseradish
½ teaspoon seasoned pepper
Hungarian paprika

Method:

Preheat oven to 400°.
In a small bowl mix together, juice, cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, horseradish and pepper.
Place fillets in 13 x 9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
Spread with Parmesan mixture.
Sprinkle with paprika.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Happy cooking!

  2. Pam, We love orange roughy. It's firm and as you said it isn't 'fishy' tasting. Love the Dijon mustard/horseradish/parmesan coating! Another fish we enjoyed when we were in Australia was barramundi, a fish you rarely find here in the USA. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  8. Looks really good Pam and with a name like Slimehead, it's easy to see why it's sold as Orange Roughy - like Chilean Sea Bass (Patagonian Toothfish)

    1. Ha! Yep! Don't think I'd buy Slimehead! That's my "learn something new every day" bit for today. Chilean name is a little better. ☺ I've never had CSB, never see it around here, but would love to try it, supposed to be great, I hear! Here's to Slimehead!

  9. I must admit i'm not familiar with this kind of fish, Orange Roughy. However, I'm fond of fish in general and also of horseradish, mustard, and hungarian paprika. It seems to me your recipe has the right seasoning, and the result is delicious and easy to make (just what one looks for in a recipe).

  17. No a fish we would be able to buy here but I can imagine this recipe would be good with any white fish. I have made a note of it and will certainly give it a try.
    Thanks Pam and I love your header. Diane

    1. Hi Diane! Yes, about any white fish would work with the horseradish. We really liked it. Thanks for your nice comment! Take care
