This recipe just didn’t do it for me at all. I followed exactly. I don’t know what I could have done differently to make me want to try it again. Read More

Mmm good flavor increases if you let it sit for a bit. Went back for seconds only this time I added Sriracha and it was even better. Next time I'm going to try adding scallions green onion & pineapple. Hi sister Martha:-) Read More

Thank you for this yummy recipe! I do not own a dutch oven so I improvised with process. I sauteed my cod in a shallow pan with extra virgin olive oil 5 minutes on each side. Sometimes it falls apart in the pan which is no big deal to us. In a separate saute pan heated the lime juice rice vinegar brown sugar and soy sauce. Mine never thickened either but brought to a boil. Added tomatoes. Then put sauce with tomatoes in the cod pan and warmed together then served. Very tangy tasting! Yum! Read More

A refreshing way to cook fish. It was very tasty and tender. It took more than 10 minutes to cook, though. Read More

I would give this zero stars if I could. Started out making exactly as directed but after stirring and simmering the glaze 20-25 minutes and it not getting any thicker at all I added a bit of thickener. After it was thickened I put the cod in the sprayed pan as directed and covered. After 10 minutes of baking the fish still wasn't cooked which was no big deal but the glaze became funky looking. Baked another 5 minutes and the glaze looked even worse. Went out for dinner. Read More
