This is my absolute favorite fish recipe for its wonderful flavor and ease of preparation. I love Mediterranean food and the mild, tender Roughy is a fantastic compliment to the fresh and vibrant feta, caper and tomato topping. This is a great, healthy recipe that will have you feeling like you just ate in a fancy restaurant. I adapted this recipe from a recipe found at epicurious.com. As usual, substituting or eliminating any ingredients will greatly change the flavor as each ingredient compliments the other.

Bravo!! Two thumbs up!! The thing that makes this recipe great is it is perfect as written, and if you don't have an item or two in stock, you can substitute and it is still delicious. I've substituted calamato olives for the capers (though I LOVE capers...but didn't have them) It came out great, valdalia onion instead of red? I prefer red, but still came out great! No sour cream? Can use yogurt...still wonderful. I'm curious to try a variation with artichoke hearts. THANK YOU for such a tasty dish, one I will be making again and again....
This was wonderful! I cut the recipe in half used tomato/basil feta and used a few more capers and onions...delicious! Thank you for sharing. Made for Diabetic Summer Trip in the Diabetic Forum 2013.
I made this for my boyfriend last night. He LOVED it. I would probably add a little more onion or garlic and you can sub Greek Yourget (which I do, my sweetie isn't a fan of sour cream). This looks and smells amazing! ENJOY!
