Asian Marinade for Fish or Shrimp

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by FlemishMinx

I found this recipe on the internet. It was originally for tuna steaks, but I've found that it is just as delicious for catfish and other white fish fillets, and for shrimp. Original recipe is for 1 pound of fish, but I think this makes enough to marinate a bit more than that. Preparation time includes 20 minutes marinating time.
