    CaribbeanQueen's Note:

    Being raised in the Pacific Northwest we had access to every fish you can imagine. My sister (fabulous cook) learned early on that KISS is the best rule when serving fish! The sauce is light, yet full of flavor.

      Wow. This was SO good. I made double the recipe, placed yellowtail on angel hair pasta, and drizzled this sauce over both. The fish was a little fishy. Normally my boyfriend won't eat fish that's fishy at all, but he ate fishy fish because this sauce was soooo good. I had everything on hand except for the parsley, so I just left it out.

      I am sorry but this dish did not turn out very good for us. I used flounder and it was very soft. The sauce could not save this fish but the sauce was just OK. Thank you.
