Teriyaki Tilapia (My Mock Unagi)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by C. Taylor

I know the texture doesn't resemble that of unagi (eel), but I was craving unagi sushi and came up with this to satisfy my craving. It's great in sushi with avocado and scallions, but also great on its own.

I followed everything on the recipe but it turned out to be okay. I didn't really taste Unagi but I did taste "sweet". This is not bad, it just taste "different". And it does not taste like the Unagi sauce that I always have in a sushi restaurant.
