    Used different ingredients. dinner guests loved this dish. i could not find any fresh lemon grass, so substituted fresh lime juice and chopped coriander. it was wonderful.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This tasted pretty fantastic and the fish came out flaky and delicious. My only problem was that I didn't know lemongrass was so tough, so I minced it when I should have just left it in big chunks that I could pick out instead of the little stringy tough lemongrass bits getting in my teeth. The sauce was good and it was a shame to waste it; I don't know what you'd eat it over though--maybe rice?  -  29 Sep 2008


    Something else. Great recipe! I didn't serve it with teriyaki, though. I reduced the sauce with cornflour and poured it over the filets. A delicious and elegant dish, perfect for company!  -  29 Sep 2008
