    really nice  -  23 Jan 2013


    This is an excellent recipe, though I made a few adjustments. First, I marinated the fish (salmon and mahi mahi) overnight instead of for just one hour. Second I added a tablespoon of ginger and chili paste for a touch more complexity. Both fish were wonderful, I will be sure to use this again and again.  -  09 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
