Garlic-Crusted Roughy

Garlic-Crusted Roughy

2 lbs. orange roughy filets

1/4 tsp. lemon pepper

1/4 tsp. onion powder

1/2 cup fresh garlic

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup fresh parsley

1 1/2 cups Goya Sauce

Additional fresh parsley sprigs

Place fish in glass dish; sprinkle with lemon pepper and onion powder. Cover and refrigerate, about 2 hours. In skillet over low heat cook chopped garlic (about 10 large cloves) in oil just until softened and very fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Drain garlic, reserving oil. Pat garlic onto 1 side of fish filets, then pat chopped parsley over garlic. Heat 1 tablespoon reserved oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of fish, garlic side down. Cook until browned, about 1-1 1/2 minutes. Gently turn fish, reduce heat to medium and cook until opaque in center, about 3 more minutes. Repeat with remaining fish. To serve, place filet on each of 6 plates, each with 1/4 cup Goya Sauce (recipe below). Garnish with additional parsley sprigs.
