This is such a great recipe and scales up for large crowds beautifully. Even fish haters (like me) love this dish!! The marinade cooks up in to a beautiful mahogony glaze that is not too sweet, with a slight Asian flare! Serve with roasted cauliflower and crusty bread and you have a perfect healthy meal!

  • 2Tb soy sauce
  • 2tsp fresh ginger minced
