I just love this dressing over fish. Use any kind of firm, large flaking, fish fillets you can get.

This is an outstanding recipe!!! We loved this. I made it with cod and used 60 ml sesame oil to try it out and we liked that, but agree with Jan that the original amount would be too much. I made this for the two of us so there were two fish steaks but I did make all of the dressing. I was glad I did because I served it with a cucmber salad, plain rice and it served as a sauce. When making this for six I will certainly double the dressing!

great dressing for Anything! so, the american measurements i used: 4T soy sauce (i use Braggs) 3T rice vinegar, 2T sesame oil (that was plenty). the only other thing i stirred in was about 2t red chili sauce. fantastic! at the last minute we decided against fish, so i used it for the stir fry veggies and it was a Huge hit with hubby and two teens.

Very quick, and easy recipe - having read the reviews, I parred right back on the sesame oil, but added a bit of sugar for some sweetness. Fish perfectly cooked, and went well with stir-fried veg and rice
