    Made this today with a whole fish. My husband and kids (who rarely sees a whole fish on a table) loves it. I only made this once in my life but had great memories growing up when mom used to make it and it tasted like it was, growing up. Thank you for the recipe. Perfect balance of the sweet and sour. I used the apple cider vinegar.
