Pairs Well With
Orange roughy is a an affordable white fish with a very mild flavor. I usually cook this fish with french fries for my daughter's birthday party, and the kids absolutely love it! After I fry the fish pieces, I like to slice the fish into "chicken finger" size and serve it with ketchup.
