This was really good and so fast! I couldn't believe I had this quality of a dish out of the microwave! I did make a few changes to utilize what I had on hand. I used tilapia filets, omitted the green onions, and added sesame seeds. I had to double the cornstarch to get the sauce to thicken. The cooking time was perfect for the thin fish filets I used. We really enjoyed the flavor. Thank you for a recipe I will use again!
