I served it with Sushi Rice (Japanese Rice) and it was very good. I found that 1 tsp salt is too much because there is a lot of salt in Soy sauce already. I think it is better not to add salt at all.

This was the worst fish I have ever tasted. It was tough and much too salty even though I did not add salt. My husband is a died in the wool fish eater did not like this at all.

Very tasty marinade! Makes tons. Hubby liked it too. Probally would be really good over grilled tuna as well.

I would give this 10 stars if I could. My husband couldn't stop talking about it, and my father kept giving me the "thumbs up" during dinner (a major compliment) I did take the advice of the other reviewers and added less ginger (2 tablespoons) and it was delicious. Thanks, Janice!!!

Thankyou everyone for giving me such a high rating on this recipe. I admit that you can cut back on ginger. I come from the Micronesian island of Kosrae and we use much ginger there. I have other recipes, with an island flair, that I plan to add to this site in the future.

This recipe is excellent and very easy!!! I used half the ginger and would probably reduce the amount to about 2 tablespoons next time.

I loved this recipe as did everyone I made it for. I do think that 1/2 cup of ginger is an awful lot. I used less than 1/4 cup and it was delicious.

This is an excellent recipe! We loved it and will make it again and again. I did not use as much ginger as the recipe called for but simply grated up one 2inch piece. It was plenty gingery and delicious!
