I liked this recipe overall, though it could benefit from a little tweaking. Made the sauce the night before so it was easy to throw everything together. I liked the method for cooking the fish. I think the sauce was good, really fresh tasting, I added extra red wine vinegar. Next time would add maybe 1/2 to 1 tbs of fresh lemon juice to brighten up.
