Wow, we loved this fish! I used apple cider vinegar which worked fine, and I loaded it up with ginger that I minced. The flavors are magnificent here, and go beautifully with brown rice, roasted cauliflower and a red pepper corn saute. The green onions are mellow and not overpowering. We will definitely be enjoying this good cod again soon! Thanks for a winner!
I also saw this recipe in "Everyday Food" and had meant to try it. It was very good, and I so appreciate the fact it had so little fat in it! I used frozen Alaskan cod, which meant it was a little tough at the end -- but that's not the fault of the recipe. The flavors were delicious, and it was extremely easy to make. Thanks for posting it!

I am a former retail management slave who is now a stay at home mom who absolutely loves her job. I have an eight year old, a two year old and a nine month old who all bring their own kind of joy to my life. My favorite thing in the world is to cook. We have a real, from scratch family dinner almost every night. Please don't be offended if I somewhat change a recipe in my review. I look at recipes sort of as guidelines, and alter them according to inspiration. I've received alot of helpful advice from reviews, that's why I share what I've done differently. With my little ones I'm pretty busy, but I LOVE this site and plan on being even more active as they get older.
