  • “Very Nice.I didn’t have peanut oil so used sesame oil.I also toasted some raw sesame seeds and sprinkled them on top as a garnish since I didn’t have the cilantro.”

  • “thought this was just ok. used grouper and broiled it. not as flavorful as i’d hoped. thanks for posting tho.”

  • “Fantastic Fish!! We loved this simple recipe. I could not get any of my dishes inside of a pan that had a lid, so I’ll have to get a steamer for this! Instead I made the fish as directed (using firm white fillets) and placed them under the broiler. Perfect!Also my black bean sauce was without garlic, so I stirred some crushed garlic into it. Loved the ginger pieces! Served with stir fryed vegetables. Yum!”

  • “This was a real treat!”

  • “Reallyenjoyedf this dish! I used powdered dry ginger but it was still great. I cut the recipe back because two of us had this recipe and I made a separatedish with one piece of filet with plain Garlic, Lemon and Ginger. L9ve your recipes Tebo.Cheers Bergy”
