“Burnt Orange” Roughy


2 1/4 lbs. Orange Roughy fillets
3/4 c. butter, melted
2 tbsp. seasoned salt
3/4 c. butter
1/2 c. lime juice
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. white pepper

In a small saucepan over low heat, melt 3/4 cup butter, and transfer to a shallow pan. Dip Orange Roughy fillets in 1/2 cup of the melted butter, coating all sides. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and place in a very hot skillet. Carefully add remaining 1/4 cup melted butter to the top of the fish (it will flare). Turn after about 2 minutes, and cook for another 2 minutes on the other side. Meanwhile, melt another 3/4 cup butter in a skillet and stir in lime juice, salt, and white pepper, until heated through. Serve the snapper with the lime butter sauce. Makes 4 servings.
