    It was a bit heavy on the soya sauce for me, I'd have liked the orange flavour to be more prevelant, next time I'll make it with no soya and more orange and see how it goes  -  02 Sep 2015


    Wow, this tasted even better than expected. I added toasted sesame seeds and sliced scallions on top of the fish to serve. Also, I stirred in about 1 tbsp cornstarch to the marinade after I took the tilapia out of the oven (for 3 servings).  -  10 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The original version of this recipe is worthy of 4 stars, but by adding toasted sesame seeds and some Thai red chili paste it easily becomes a 5 star recipe.  -  05 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
