"easy and fast..sauce complements the fish flavor"

"Pretty tasty, though it came out pretty wet. Maybe I should have patted the fish fillets dry before baking? Unlike a previous reviewer, I thought the seasoning was great--kicky, but not overwhelming."

"This was good, but a little to much on the seasoning, I will cut it back the next time."
