  • Reviews

  • “Flavour was fantastic!I preferred to steam the fish instead of microwaving but that was just a personal preference.”

  • “We used only the marinade portion of this recipe in order to make Recipe #241227. This is a wonderful marinade! The only thing we did different was to use peanut oil in lieu of the sesame oil. A definite keeper, thanks for posting! :)”
