Marinated Orange Roughy

Today over at Life As Mom the theme for the Ultimate Recipe Swap is Fish. I don't make a lot of fish (unless fish sticks count!), but when we do make fish the family has a few favorites.

Two of our favorite fish recipes, I have previously shared. They are Grilled Marlin and Tilapia Vera Cruz.

Another recipe that we like to make from time to time is Marinated Orange Roughy (of course you could substitute another white fish).

Marinated Orange Roughy

1 1/2# orange roughy (or other white fish)
1/2 c orange juice
1/4 c ketchup
2 tbsp canola oil
2 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp sesame seeds
In a bowl, combine the orange juice, ketchup, oil, soy sauce, lemon juice and pepper; mix well. Remove 1/4 c of the marinade to reserve for basting - cover and refrigerate. Pour remaining marinade into resealable plastic bag, add the fish. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for two hours; turning once or twice.

Drain and discard marinade. Place fillets on a broiler pan coated with non-stick spray. Broil 4-6" from the heat for 5-6 min on each side, basting occasionally with the reserved marinade. The fish will flake easily with a fork. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

I like to serve this dish with a rice pilaf or a pasta in a butter sauce (frequently, it comes from a packet) and green beans.
