I would've given this 5 stars except I modified it to suit my dietary needs. I don't eat processed foods so I did not use tomato sauce or Worcestershire. Instead I pureed two medium tomatoes to replace the canned sauce and left off the Worcestershire sauce altogether. I used one stalk of celery two small carrots half and onion half a bell pepper. I seasoned with 1/2 teasp. sea salt and a palm full of parsley with a squeeze of lemon. I also used thinly sliced lemon on top of the fish while baking. It came out supremo!! It's nice to be able to convert a recipe to something all natural and his one was easily converted. Read More

Mainly it comes down to an issue of taste. Celery is the dominant flavor here and that was not popular. I prepared this with Jasmine Rice and Baked Vegetables. I can appreciate that others might enjoy this flavor but it was just not right for us. Read More

This is also excellent if you use extra firm tofu instead of fish for a vegitarian dish. Read More

I enjoyed this recipe as a nice change from the usual fish dish. I wasn't paying much attention and used probably 2x the Worcestershire sauce called for. Maybe more. It tasted great! It added a nice richness and tang to the sauce. I also used tilapia fillets added garlic and failed to garnish. Read More

Very good. I marinated it for 5 hours. It was just a little bit too sweet for me. Next time I'll use less sugar. There will be a next time. Read More
