I coated the fish with the spice mixture first then with the ginger slices. Moist and very flavorful.
nice twist on gravlax. the 5-spice is the power ingredient, and if overused, can dominate the fish. i loved it overall, but it made a lot, and with anything, sometimes too much of a good thing turns into just too much. i'd certainly make it again, and be sure to share, share share.
