adapted from the Chicago Tribune. Haven't tried it yet. Looks great. Made to go with any type of oily fish, like salmon or tuna.

I had this sauce on fried fish for dinner tonight, and it was nice. I did scale the recipe, and was a little sloppy in measuring the ingredients. As a result, my sauce was rather more strongly flavored than I'd like to think of as the ideal. No problem. I like all of the ingredients, and will be more cautious next time with the garlic and ginger. BTW, when it came out of the food processor, it seemed very liquid, but did thicken up some in a short time in the fridge. I will make this again. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.
