    Fairly nice flavor, but needed something. May try again with mushrooms and peppers and marinade for a while before cooking. Overall OK recipe.

    This was such a nice change from just plain baked fish with lemon juice. I printed this one out to be sure to have it in my files. Really nice layer of flavors in the toppings. We had this with brown rice and it was so good.

    My husband and I really like this recipe. It is very easy and fast to make. My husband doesn't like onions so I had to substitute onion powder for the onions.

    Something didn't make sense in the equation here. Not sure which ingrediant it was but I just didn't care for it.

    I love this recipe. I have made it once with Cod and once with Tilapia. Tonight I am going to double the sauce and put it over chicken. I combine it with a scrumptious fried rice. This is fast and easy and tastes great. My oldest son does not care much for ginger so when he comes I will slice my ginger root and let it simmer in the sauce. If you want to dip your toe into a yummy Asian taste. Give this a try.
