This was outstanding! I couldn't find shiitake mushrooms, so I used portabella mushrooms which was equally delicious. DH rarely says "clear five stars" but this time he did say it after two bites! Thanks for sharing this winner :)<br/>Made for ZWT 9 / Creole and Cajun for The Apron String Travelers

I had Orange Roughy Fillets and used those. Did it in my Foreman Grill. I did use less spice, but we realy enjoyed this. I served it with a Skinny Hollandaise sauce.
