  1. I like this dish a lot and will definitely make it again but next time I'll skip the cornstarch step since I didn't have that much liquid in the pan so it clumped up a bit, but that could have been my mistake. Thank you.
  2. Countrylady, I really enjoyed this recipe. I was working with frozen Mahi Mahi fillets from Costco but they didn't taste like frozen using this method of cooking. However, I did not cook them as long, 10 minutes at the most. Then I kept them warm while I finished the sauce, then served them along side garlic mashed potatoes and peas. The sauce did really nice things to the mashed potatoes. Anyway, next time I'll make it with fresh whatever and see if I can spot the difference. Thanks for a keeper!


In the words of Tracy Byrd, "I'm from the country & I like it that way"!! On May 1, 2008 my husband and I started a new adventure. We'll be living in a 37 foot RV while our new home is under construction. Its out in the country on a dead end dirt road with lots of trees. For the next 4 months or so, most meals will be cooked on the BBQ and life will be full of challenges! We love spending quality time with our friends & family - especially the grandkids!!

I've participated in many contests & events here on Zaar but this is the first banner that I've posted. My thanks to Dreamgoddess for hosting the contest & SusieD for the banner design! <img src="">
