    I used this to make Basa for the first time. I was gorgeous. Will use for various fish again. My husband loved it as well. Thanks for sharing.  -  12 Jan 2018


    This was easy and added lots of flavor to the fish!  -  25 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious! The flavors are beautifully balanced. I chose to bake the fish uncovered so the soy and honey made a glaze. We all enjoyed it and will have it again. Best of all there is no leftover fishy odor. Thank you, Christina  -  11 Jan 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
