Wow, we loved this fish! I used apple cider vinegar which worked fine, and I loaded it up with ginger that I minced. The flavors are magnificent here, and go beautifully with brown rice, roasted cauliflower and a red pepper corn saute. The green onions are mellow and not overpowering. We will definitely be enjoying this good cod again soon! Thanks for a winner!

I made this with powdered ginger, and it was just okay. Not the fault of the recipe..
