Instead of grilling I floured and pan seared the fish (medium flame) with a little butter. Browned both sides lowered the flame covered it when almost cooked I poured 1 tbls of sauce and covered again. Fish remained seared and not soggy. I roasted flaked coconut w a pinch of raw sugar in a little butter then added the cilantro/green onion topping. To serve: pour some sauce on the plate; place the fish on top of sauce top with the roasted coconut topping. Served with a side of white rice and black beans. AMAZING! Read More

No mention in recipe as to what to do with the cilantro and green onion. I used as garnish when serving. With all of these flavorful ingredients I thought this recipe would be power-packed with flavor. Not the case. Unfortunately I found it a bit bland. Sorry only 3 's from me. Read More

very good - I baked it, just a little Olive Oil in bottom of glass pan, lay the fillets in and lightly salted them - poured the sauce over the top, covered with foil and baked 25 minutes...it was amazing!! Read More

The ingredient list calls for green onions and cilantro but the recipe instructions does not include them. I added these two ingredients at the same time as everything else. When I made this recipe most of the sauce was cooked of but it still turned out tasting great. I will definetly make this again sometime. Read More

I would say this was a 3.5-4 recipe; pretty good but nothing amazing. It definitely needed some salt and no skimping on the ginger--needs all of it for the right flavor. I think the lemongrass & thai basil other reviewers used would've really made this even more delicious. We all liked it enough to make it again but will probably keep playing with it. Other big change I did to make it easier was to just cook the fish in the coconut sauce. It was very moist & flavorful & made this dish even easier to make. Read More

This recipe is absolutely delicious. I've made it for my family several times and they love it. My guess on some of the "it's bland" comments is that they didn't use the fish sauce. Good fish sauce makes this wonderful. Read More

Great flavor in the coconut sauce. I followed directions nearly all the way, but also threw in some of the sauce with the fish during the end of the cooking time. It kept the meat nice and moist. A super easy and delicious main dish. Read More

Made this for the people I nanny for and they both loved it! Will def make it again. He actually doesn't like coconut milk but said it was great before he knew what was in it. I used half hoisin sauce/half soy sauce because I didn't have fish sauce. Read More

Yes I pan sautéed the fish- tasted sauce and seemed bland - added a dash of Srarcha sauce and close to two tablespoons brown sugar - much much better- would be a great base for a Thai soup! Read More
