I made a few changes but feel they are still with in the realm of being able to rate it. They honey I had has crystallized and I didn't have the patient to boil it so I grabbed agave and used it instead. The asparagus had gone bad before I had a chance to cook so I omitted it. Other than these changes I followed the recipe. It was very good. I loved the squash and the fish was gobbled down. The kids thought the squash was sweet potato. My kids eat squash normally and this gives me a new way to serve it. I liked the taste of the agave with the lime. They worked really well together.
