I think the problem with this resipe is in the term "chili sauce." If you make it with the cousin of cocktail sauce as people have been, I imagine it would be terrible. However, if you use more of a chili PASTE or a SAUCE MADE ONLY OF CHILIS, you get a very different result, spicy and delicious. I used a Vietnamese chili and garlic paste/sauce, and it was excellent. NOTE: DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF CHILI PASTE IF YOU WANT TO EAT IT!! A couple of tablespoons is plenty, even for us fire-mouthed southerners.

This recipe was really gross. My husband says he can make anything taste good with hot sauce. Well, I just found the first recipe that he couldn't! We threw it out & had sandwiches.

This was delicious! I tried it on a fluke because I had fish that I needed to use, and I am so glad that I did! This is a regular favorite at my house now. You could use less rice and don’t be surprised if you need to bake it longer. Also, I don't usually keep chili sauce on hand, so I made my own with tomato puree, chili powder, cumin, and a small amount of vegetable oil. Add Creole seasoning for extra flavor! Enjoy!

I liked this recipe, but I changed it a lot. I'll give you the details because my photo is currently the one up there. I didnt have hot pepper sauce or chili sauce, so at that point in the recipe I added 1/4 cup tomato paste and about 4 tablespoon creole seasoning. I also used Whiting filets instead of cod and broiled the fish instead of baking, combining all three parts at the end. This is how I would make it again.

well...I never had chili sauce before and I didn't know it was so much like cocktail sauce, which I can't stand. My boyfriend (who does like chili and cocktail sauces) didn't like this too much either. the sauce is really overpowering.

Tried this on my crew and they loved it. Had to make recipe larger and hotter. Used rotel instead of chili sauce and tomatoes. Still very good.
