I don't know where I found this recipe but my boys love it. It's very simple and I usually have all the ingredients on hand.

Very good! The sauce was delicious, to us, it was like a teriyaki sauce. The next time I make this, I will cut out the butter entirely (sub with additional liquid if needed), or just use a little butter on the fish directly before spooning the sauce on top. The butter in my sauce separated out. Easy to make. Made for the Vivacious Violets for ZWT7.
