I found this recipe while looking for a good Yellowtail recipe for some extra fish our neighbor gave up. It was really had to find one on the traditional websites! I found this one at posted by TubeN2. It was so good that I wanted to post it here so that I would not loose it. This would be good with any firm mild fish.

A really nice light crust on the fish, especially the toasted sesame seeds; the fish stayed really moist. I recommend doubling or tripling the sauce - it has fabulous flavor, but the original amount barely makes enough to dribble a bit on each filet.

Wow! The fish browned up beautifully and was nice and moist. Next time I'll double the sauce. It is fantastic.
