How to Grill Gluten-Free Cajun Orange Roughy

This gluten-free fish dish will definitely awaken your taste buds! The mild flavor of the orange roughy doesn’t compete with the spicy paste, and the whole combination teases the tongue just a bit. If you like your foods super-hot, add more cayenne.

Don’t overcook the filets, or the fish may become tough.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 8 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Nonstick cooking spray

Four 5-ounce orange roughy filets
