I was really dissapointed with this recipe. All it tasted like was soy sauce and way too salty. Waste of my fish :-(

this recipe is really good it has a great marinade to it

After reading reviews where people said it was too salty, I added a little honey so try and counter that. At the end of the day it was just fish, nothing special about it.

We LOVED this marinade! We cut the soy sauce in 1/2 after reading the other reviews and it was perfect with talapia!

This was perfecto! I love it I use it all the time! some people say it's too salty or it's perfect depending if you like strong of light marinades. I'm cooking it tonight even! BEST MARINADE EVE...

Easy and delicious! I used this marinade on orange roughy and I was really impressed with the finished result. The fish was great and the marinade was quite easy to prepare. I liked this marinad...

I used Jack Daniel's for the whiskey and it gave it a bit of a sweet flavor. Very good. Next time I'll try the low sodium soy sauce, though, because it was very salty.

After reading some of the other reviews, I used a little less than 1/4 cup of soy. I was afraid of using to little, but apparently that was unfounded. I couldn't taste much other than the salt...

I did not like it at all. I even used low sodium soy sauce. Also, bourbon really don't go well with fish, its better with beef.
