    This was amazing. I served it with Cilantro Lime Rice and a vegetable. I can't wait to make it again. - 2/17/10

    this is an amazing meal.I used jerked rub instead. Next time I make this, I plan to alter the ratio of the soy. I did find one that had 400mg of sodium but I think I will try another type. - 8/22/09

    I had a tuna steak that I used with this marinade. After marinading, I rolled the tuna in sesame seeds and baked. Served it on a bed of spinach. It all went well together. - 2/28/08
