I doubled this to 12 servings (for 8 people) and had absolutely no left-overs. Another one for my diabetic dinner guests, yet well received by all!

This was GOOD fish! I had more than your recipe, so I doubled the marinade. The sauteed onion and garlic really smelled good and gave it a good flavor. I didn't grill, though, I broiled it.

Excellent flavor in this fish recipe. I made it as described and it turned out great. It was easy to prepare and the results were quite tasty. We will be having this again, I'm sure. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

This was beyond the last day's of summer BBQ but got my son to fire up the ole barby one last time. It was well worth it. I had salmon and orange roughy fillets, they both turned out succulent, wonderful flavor, didn't mask the delicate taste of the fish.
