Great recipe for fish. My wife even likes it, and she usually only likes fish when it's deep fried. I've used Tilapia and Swai. I like the Swai better since it absorbs more of the flavor. I serve it with Lemon Rice. It's a great match and makes a great meal.

Just sublime flavor. Like some of the others, I found the garlic powder to be a bit redundant, especially since I upped the total number of cloves, mincing some, and rough chopping the rest. I paired this with a cayenne lemon rice and asparagus for an awesome meal.

It was sooooo good! I also did not blend and simply chopped the garlic and the ginger but I did add some salt. And I did not grill the fish - I cooked it in a nonstick pan covered with a "breathing" lid. I'll definately be doing this again. Often!
