      This was very good and very easy to make. I cut everything in half, since I was only making it for my husband and myself. I didn't have scallions, so I left those out. It smelled pretty sweet while it was cooking, and we thought it was going to be too sweet, but then you get the spice from the 5 spice powder, and it turned out to be an awesome balance of flavors. Be careful not to reduce the sauce too much, or the sugar will begin to carmelize itself to your pan! I served this fish over herbed quinoa and served some mixed veggies on the side. Thanks so much for posting this!
