  1. This was a good marinade, and permeated the fish. We had fresh from AK halibut but felt it overwhelmed this delicious fish and was a little salty for our tastes. The overall flavor was good, but would need some tweaking if we made it again. I thought the sauce was great for dipping, my husband didn't like it as much. Again, maybe if we used it on a lesser cut of meat where you might be trying to "cover up" some fishy tastes it would be great. Made for 123 hit wonders.
  2. pretty darn good. We loved the marinade,but will skip the sauce next time. Quick and easy , that's what we like in our kitchen. Thanks Teresa. Made for 123 tag.
  3. Wonderfully flavorful marinade for fish. My grocery store was out of halibut, so I got Corvina instead. I used the inside grill and it cooked up fabulously! The sauce compliments the fish well. Very tasty!
  4. This was a great seasoning for the halibut. We thought the sauce was too much in the fact the fish was perfectly fine without the sauce. Will definitely make again, but no sauce needed with such a perfect blend of seasonings. thanks for posting
