This recipe surpassed my expectations. It was moist and the flavours from the marinade permeated the fish. Delicious and a keeper. I didn't have any sesame seeds so substituted 3 Tbsp. crushed pecans....the rest was identical. I served this with fingerling potatoes and steamed asian veggies....roma tomatoes sliced on the side. Yum! Read More
