Really quite good. I used 3/4 of a cup sugar, and 1 tsp of dill. I also baked in the oven at 375ยบ for 10 minutes per side and it turned out great. Will make again.

I did not care for this recipe.

It was awesome. Took out the dill and used less brown sugar. We will use this recipe again!

This is a great recipe and everyone at the table loved it!

Excellent ! Have made this many times. Sweet with just enough heat. Makes alot of sauce for 1 pound of fish, I make half the amount of sauce. Served with rice and broccoli, a wonderful meal.
