“I created this recipe because my family just loves the dynamite dishes served in sushi restaurants. It's a hit for all ages! This would even be great on top of chicken breasts! Serve atop of sushi rice and a side of steamed broccoli. Garnish with a lemon wedge.”

I was curious about this recipe, wondering how it would turn out with uncooked veggies in mayo type sauce....it was amazing!! My husband, who doesn't care for fish much, LOVED it! Used lite mayo and while sauce was a bit thin, was perfect with sushi rice and snap peas. Follow the recipe...it's perfect.



I halved the ingredients for 2 people and had lunch the next day too. Didn't add the sugar for lower carbs. This was knock our socks off yummy. We both couldn't get over how flavorful and how well the fish was cooked for cooking so long. I think cutting it in bite sized pieces helped cook evenly, and the mushroom sauce on top was thick and so kept the fish from burning. Was also surprised that halibut is so costly right now. We'll save it for special friends and splurges for ourselves. Great recipe.



I did change a few things: I used vegenaise instead of mayonnaise, because I wanted to cut out dairy. I also used extra chili garlic sauce, and toasted the sesame seeds. Thrown on a bed of fresh arugula, it was one of the best meals I've had this month!
