"PREP TIME INCLUDES MARINATING TIME. This is my favorite fish recipe. The combination of ginger and the cilantro is to die for. Just add some white rice and a rum punch and you'll think you're on a Caribbean vacation! Although the recipe says Sea Bass, you can use any mild flavored fish and have excellent results. I've tried this with grouper, snapper, mahi-mahi and cod. The recipe calls for 4 hours or marinating time, but I often only have about an hour - and it tastes great just the same! The recipe is from La Jolla Cooks, a fundraising cookbook for La Jolla Country Day School."

Oh Yummers, this fish is Oh-So-Good! We used haddock and because of timing, marinated only for an hour, but it didn’t lack one smidgen of flavor. The marinade adds wonderful flavor! Browned skin-side-down in an olive oil-greased cast iron skillet and finished it off in the oven. Poured the rest of the marinade over all and baked for about 10-12 minutes. It came out super moist with such good flavor at every bite. You know that I WILL be making this fish on the grill this summer. It sure is a keeper and the fish lovers in my family enjoyed it as much as I did. Thank you, JostLori, for another winner. Made it for FYC.
