  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  1. Combine peanut oil, sesame oil, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, green onions, garlic, ginger, red pepper and brown sugar.
  2. Place fish in a shallow glass dish, and pour marinade over fish. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours.
