This was a nice marinade. The basting, while adding an extra step, really did impart more flavor, so I'm glad I didn't skip it. THANKS for the recipe!

Made this for my family and everybody thought it was excellent! Followed the recipe using tamari soy sauce. No left overs here.

Wonderful marinade!! Definitely a keeper and I will now use this again and again. I did not have dijon mustard so I used regular mustard with some horseradish. I added some ginger as well. It was a big hit in this house.

I made this last night. Our friend went fishing and caught some yellowfin tuna. He gave some of it to my husband. I had no idea what to do with it, so I tried this recipe. As others mentioned, I basted the fish while it was on the grill. He LOVED it ! When my husband tries something new, he usually says "it's ok ". I'm a vegetarian, so I didn't try it. This time he RAVED! He even had me print the recipe so he could give a copy to his fisherman friend. I am going to try this marinade with sushi grade Ahi & give it a quick sear.

Wow. I happened upon several pounds of barracuda, which I decided to serve to a large party of guests. I had no idea how to cook it! I hesitated to make this recipe because there weren't very many reviews yet, but I'm so glad I decided to give it a try... It was remarkable! I made only a couple minor adjustments (other than the type of fish), which were to use 1 tsp. of ginger-garlic paste instead of the 1 garlic clove, and I have no grill so I blackened the fish in a cast iron skillet instead. The end result was glorious and my guests raved. Thank you for an excellent recipe!
