Teriyaki Tilapia (My Mock Unagi)

Teriyaki Tilapia (My Mock Unagi) created by C. Taylor

I know the texture doesn't resemble that of unagi (eel), but I was craving unagi sushi and came up with this to satisfy my craving. It's great in sushi with avocado and scallions, but also great on its own.

    I followed everything on the recipe but it turned out to be okay. I didn't really taste Unagi but I did taste "sweet". This is not bad, it just taste "different". And it does not taste like the Unagi sauce that I always have in a sushi restaurant.

    Delicious...I made this when I hadnt been to the grocery store in over 2 weeks, and was looking for something simple to do with the frozen tilipia fillets in my freezer. I didnt have fresh ginger, so I used ground. I'm sure it would have been even better with the fresh, but I was very impressed with the outcome!

    Yes, it's not 100% like unagi. But, it sure is close. This will definitely keep me happy in between trips to the sushi bar!
