I HATE FISH... but I tried this and it was okay so I actually ate it. Hubby really like this. We will make again. Thanks for new recipe!

This sauce was very flavorful and added a nice smoky hot flavor to the fish. I doubled the sauce recipe, and used half to rub over the fish before grilling, and the other half to serve at the table as a sauce over the fish. I used tilapia.

Exceptional!This fish has tremendous flavor! I used plain, unflavored yogurt in place of the mayo, because I do not eat mayo at all. Other than that, I made it as written.So, so good! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe! Made for Zaar world Tour.
