Even if the recipe is excellent, I rarely make the same dish twice. I will DEFINITELY make this dish again, however. Perhaps next time I'll have all the ingredients.

This time I did not have orange zest, cumin or whole oranges. Instead, I used canned mandarin oranges (some in the rub - mashed up. some cooking alongside the fish).

Oh, and I used thai rice noodles and added just a bit of the garlic and the rub and some extra oil to stir fry them just a bit before serving. Very pretty on the plate.
