    Southern Polar Bear's Note:

    This recipe is from Eddie V's Edgewater Grill in Scottsdale, Arizona. It is the original recipe; however, I make a few slight changes to the recipe (to accomodate my personal tastes) when I make it. First, I add a little soy sauce to the vinaigrette to bring out the flavors a little more. Second, I only use 2 Tbsp. of olive oil (instead of the recommended 4 Tbsp.) because I like a chunkier vinaigrette. Third, I chop the cilantro and sprinkle it on top of the fish and salsa. Either way, it is a great recipe and worth having at least once!

      WOW! This is one of the best recipes I have every tasted. I made the following minor changes: Instead of 4 TB rice wine vinegar I used 2 TB rice vinegar and 2 TB red wine vinegar. I used chopped cilantro instead of cilantro sprigs. In the future I would only use 2 TB olive oil in the vinaigrette, it would be better chunky. This would be good with any type of fish, a meatier fish like tuna is perfect with it. Thank you for this awesome recipe!

      This was fantastic!!!! I rarely write reviews because I don't usualy make a recipe more than once. However my parents are visiting for the weekend and I pride myself on dishing up great meals when they visit and this one made the menu. So this is the second time I have made in less than a month.
