      Wow, this recipe is really good! I used tilapia fillets and covered them in cornstarch. I used Splenda instead of brown sugar. I did not have bell peppers. Even with these changes, the sauce was terrific. It was so good, I finished the fish and saved the sauce.

      Thanks for posting the recipe and for those who rated it.

      This recipe is excellent! So simple and delicious. I used two whole tilapia, but next time I will use tilapia filets to make it easier. This reminded me of the Philippines!
