  1. I like this recipe a lot. If you don't have sesame oil you can sub olive oil. It's best with the sesame oil. I rub the fresh ginger into the fish then put on the garlic pepper, drizzle with the oil. I also drizzle with tamari and some sweet mirin to heighten the Japanese flavors. - Read more ...
  2. I did toast my sesame seeds first and even a tad of soy sauce due to the other reviewers. The fish was moist but bland and boring. I will not be making it again.
  3. We found this delicious. I did make a few small changes based on the ingredients I had on hand. Rather than shaved ginger, I lightly coated each side with powdered ginger. I also toasted the sesame seeds before coating the fish. After adding the sesame oil I added kosher salt but no garlic pepper. Once - Read more ...
  4. Missing something. Not quite sure what. Definitely needed something else though. I put a dash of soy sauce on mine and it helped.
  5. I thought this recipe was excellent and will be making it again. The flavors are subtle but I love sesame oil/seeds and their flavor.
  6. Whole Foods and most other stores stopped selling Mahi Mahi due to code Red overfishing; they suggested Tuna instead due to its similar texture. From reading the previous reviews I doubled the ginger amount. It was awesome! My friends said that it was one of the best dishes I made in a long time. Nice!:)
  7. Not much flavor. Oven too hot and cooking time too long...On to the next...
  8. I agree it did not turn out very flavorful. We thought it might need some soy sauce for a boost.
  9. Honestly our did not turn out very flavorful.. maybe I should have used more ginger? Probably won't make again.
