Sorry, but we didn't care for this much, surprisingly.

Baked instead of grilled and it was delicious!

I took the one reviewer's advice and added some white wine to the marinade. I also made twice as much sauce and used half for marinating, half for basting on the grill. A very nice mix of flavor...

Never write reviews, but felt the need to share--this recipe is well worth what little effort it takes! Simple and very tasty!

This recipe is a favorite and a regular on our grill! Easy and delicious. Marinate for several hours for best flavor.

I absolutely loved this recipe!! Used a little less soy sauce but still great! Thanks :)

I added fresh cilantro and crushed garlic. Only marinated for 20 min but it turned out so delicious! Served it over jasmine rice cooked with chicken broth and sesame oil. I will definitely make ...

those are AWESOME

Pretty good, will definitely let it marinate longer next time.

This was delish! I was so impressed. I did add a little less soy sauce and a little more lime just because of personal preference. This is an excellent recipe I will use again and again.
