    I made this with the Pecan crusted Tilapia recipe and it came out tasting wierd. It was probably more my mistakes rather than that of the recipe itself since it turned out well for the other reviewers. I can't put my finger on what about it was off. It may have been that the citrus was just too strong. It is citrus season here in Florida and that may have been it. I will try and make it again and see if I can't do better.

    Easy, delicious and I already had all the ingredients in my pantry.

    We made the sauce per the recipe. Cooked a genuine red Snapper filet on the grill, then poured the sauce over the Snapper before serving. Gave the mild Snapper a nice little kick.

    I agree with Holly3. I made it without the rum and debated about the note saying you could substitute 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. The recipe already calls out for 2 tablespoons of lemon juice so I decided to leave the additional lemon juice to the end so I could taste it first. 2 tablespoons of lemon juice is approx. the juice of a whole average sized lemon, that's a lot of tartness! When the sauce was finished I tasted it and it was way too bitter! Even my husband said he didn't like it. I decided 1 teaspoon of honey just wasn't enough. Maybe it was a typo and it should have been 1 tablespoon. Froze the extra lemon juice for next time and added more honey (about 2 more teaspoons). It was perfect. I'm going to try the leftover sauce on chicken tonight.
