    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    This fragrant, citrusy-sweet fish is perfumed with tangerine, coriander, cilantro and Bermuda onion, and comes from Brazil, one of the world's leading producers of sweet and mandarin oranges (tangerines may have gotten their name as they passed through Tangiers in North Africa during shipping). I like to let the fish marinate for about an hour so the flavors really permeate it, then bake and serve with some rice and a green salad. This is probably interchangeable with ordinary orange juice, but there's just something wonderful about the taste of tangerines ...!

      This didn't really work for us. The texture of the poached fish was quite nice, and it cooked in about 15 minutes, which is always a plus. However, the flavour just wasn't there. The fish didn't absorb any of the tangerine or the lemon, and the liquid was more of a mild broth than a sauce, so it was difficult to keep the liquid on the fish long enough to enjoy much of its flavour. I used barramundi for the fish. Thanks for posting.

      This dish was easy to prepare & very aromatic but I found that the flavors didn't come together. I followed the recipe as shown & used ocean perch. Thanks, it was still fun to prepare.

      I adored this dish! It's very delicate flavor matches white fish very well. I forgot about marinating it and will make a point of trying that next time. It's also very presentable with the reds and greens of onion and cilantro. A truly great recipe.
