Nice idea, but the sweet / sour was not tweaked well, in my opinion. Next time I will use much less lemon juice and more sweetener. Which brings me to my next point: sugar? Sugar is not good for you. I substituted honey.
The salsa looks kind of disgusting, but it tastes GREAT!
Very tasty as has been said. Low calorie also. Adjust the lemon or lime juice/sugar mixture to suit your own taste. Same goes for the red pepper flakes. I also cooked in a foil packet to keep everything together and in contact. The fish is actually "boiled" in the juices of the fruit. I will make this again. Jim in So Calif
