    This sauce is soooo awesome. I used salmon & broiled in oven - it caramelized the sauce & made the fish so tasty, especially over rice and steamed veggies. I used light soy sauce. Also boiled remaining marinade to use as sauce on the side. Easy weeknight recipe, but I would definitely serve to friends too!  -  31 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This is a really good sauce! I used it to marinate a whole fish that had slits cut on the side. I also added a bit more ginger, only because I do like my ginger I steamed the fish and with the leftover sauce, I added some cornstarch and water to make a thicker sauce to drizzle over after serving. Low fat and good!  -  16 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    We were given some free "just-caught" mackerel by some local fishermen - I had never eaten or cooked mackerel before - and this was a very tasty recipe! I cut slits in the skin of the mackerel as suggested by other reviewers. I didn't have mirin so substituted white wine. I thought the soya sauce would be overpowering but it wasn't at all. It is a good recipe to eat while watching a DVD at home, as you really do need to "pick through the bones" slowly with mackerel.  -  21 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
