I used tilapia and steamed my own brown rice.  Loved the sauce, which I doubled, and the veggies.  It just was an unusual combination with the fish.  I think salmon would be a better choice of fish here.  But that's just me.  Will make again.

Tasty but tedious

This is a tasty dish but required too much effort with the small batch cooking of the fish. Veggies are a nice touch. I served with jasmine rice instead of brown rice in the bag.

Very tasty

Had some brown rice and Asian greens that needed using, so I just made the fish.  Added a little chopped pineapple (also needed using!) to the fish and sauce, which gave it a nice sweetness.  I've not done any Asian-style fish besides tuna and shrimp before, so this was a new thing for us.  We enjoyed it very much.

My entire family really enjoyed this dish. And I did use flounder. I especially thought that the flavor of the sauce was excellent. I served this with green beans and I will be making this again maybe next time with tilapia. Yummy.

Made this with hake fillets. They were thicker and held together quite well. Very tasty will definitely make this again.

I, like others, don't love flounder, plus it's a little harder to find in the supermarket. I made the dish with 2 lbs of tilapia, doubling the sauce recipe, and it turned out wonderfully. The tilapia is such a thin fish that the whole fillet didn't make it to the plate in one piece, but it was devoured just the same. I didn't have sesame oil, so I just toasted some sesame seeds in a dry pan then added them to the sauce. It provided a great, nutty flavor, without the fat of the oil. Will make again!
