Expert Tips

To broil, place food on broiler pan and broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times provided above as a guide.

Fish cooks very quickly on the grill, so watch it closely or it will overcook and become tough. When fish is done, it flakes easily when touched with a fork.

Instead of orange roughy, try any mild flavored white fish in this recipe such as flounder, sole or pike.

Fish is a great source of protein and is low in fat.
