    I followed the recipe for the sauces exactly, but for the fish, instead of sauteing it, I put the breading on, sprayed it with some non-stick spray, and put it in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes. It came out absolutely delicious, and a lot healthier. The flavor of the breading was fantastic, and the sauces were delicious. I'll definitely be making this often!!!
    I tried the sauces with marinated broiled salmon and they were excellent! I highly recommend this one!
