Red Snapper with Sesame Ginger Marinade

Although many microwaved dishes come out bland, this one turns out quite well due to the marinade. Even I, a non fish lover, thought this was pretty good

Flavour was fantastic! I preferred to steam the fish instead of microwaving but that was just a personal preference.

We used only the marinade portion of this recipe in order to make Sesame-Maple Grilled Chicken (Bbq). This is a wonderful marinade! The only thing we did different was to use peanut oil in lieu of the sesame oil. A definite keeper, thanks for posting! :)

We loved this really gingery red snapper with a little bite. Lots of flavour, we will be making this one again. Thanks Tebo for another keeper!!
