I could eat every day if I could. Breaking from my comfort zone, I have some ginger that I needed to use and came up with this marinate concoction. I love to blend ginger and honey, the two are so powerfully delicious when combined. Staying with an Asian theme, played with some of my favorite flavors for the marinate: rice vinegar, and soy sauce. I just had fun.
Do not over marinate the fish, longer than 1 hour, 30 minutes is just perfect. No need to put in in the refrigerator, however, do baste it and turn it occasionally.
The roasted tomatoes are busting with flavor and are an excellent side dish combination.
