  2. Grill, covered, over indirect medium-hot heat for 8-10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 2 servings.

"This recipe was not at all good. The fish was mushy and did not have a good flavor. I really like thai and I like to cook in foil on my grill, but would never do this recipe again."

"This is a great and delicious recipe. I used Uncle Ben's 90 seconds-Wild Rice (microwave) then followed the recipe. I baked it in a counter top oven at 475, but it did take about 35-40 minutes to bake. Mmmmmm Good!!!!"

"This sounds like a great recipe to try. Can't find Thai peanut sauce is my small store so could some one tell me if there is a recipe to make my own. Thank you very much"
