    I used locally sourced Dori and left them whole, as they are quite thin and using Anne's recipe they turned out to be the best fish I've ever made and probably best I've ever eaten. My wife was completely surprised and I've made it several more times for family. Salting the fish first? I would never have done that before but the Dori was unbelievable!  -  13 May 2015


    I think this is a great way to eat fish. I usually like the fish to sit on the pan a little longer to make the edges a little crispy. This recipe is definitely a keeper.  -  12 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes Southeast Asia)
