    Prepared this recipe for dinner tonight. It was easy to make and very flavorful. I'll definitely make this again.

    This was delicious! I cut the onions down to 2 cups and added bell peppers and mushrooms. Adding the marinade was a great idea! I increased the soy sauce to 2 tablespoons and reduced the sugar to 1 teaspoon. I would definitely make this again. The stir fry vegetables could stand on its own with some rice and tofu.

    I agree with some others - waaaaay too much onion in this thing, however, you don't have to eat all of it. Also, no way does this take 30 minutes to cook. Give yourself at least an hour. Otherwise, I really liked it. Very good and original combination of flavors and reheats nicely.

    With such fine ingredients I was pretty sure this would be great but was slightly disappointed. If I were to make it again I'd follow the idea of one of the reviewers & add the marinade into the onion stir fry. And I also made the whole marinade recipe for half the fish. Even then it seemed a bit dry so I added some white wine. And both the stir-fry and the fish took longer to cook than the directions indicated.

    Really liked this dish. It was easy to make and really flavorful. One problem with the recipe was that it took much longer than 4 minutes for the fish to cook. It took about 10 minutes or so, so just make sure you follow the instructions of waiting until it flakes rather than the time. I served it with broccoli and coconut jasmine rice to make a complete meal.

    I made the recipe exactly as recommended. A few suggestions. The recipe was flavorful, but I would cut the onions in half and use green and red peppers next time. Way too much onions. Also, make sure you spray the sides of you pan or pot with cooking oil. The tumeric and fish were very hard to remove from the sides of the pan as I only sprayed the bottom of my dutch oven. My fish was cut in very thin filets and cooked in the time recommended. I like the idea of adding the marinade to the onions/vegetables. I served the fish with jasmine rice.

    Loved this dish. I made the whole marinade for 2 fillets and added the marinade to the onion stir fry, thinned with a little chicken broth. We like spicy food. This treatment would work with chicken.
