Teriyaki Fish

# 100g whitefish
# 2 T Bragg Liquid Aminos
# 1 T rice vinegar (be sure to read the ingredients so that it includes NO sugar)
# 2 cloves minced garlic
# 1 t ginger

1. Mix Bragg Liquid Aminos, rice vinegar, garlic, and ginger in a ziplock bag or dish with lid.
2. Place whitefish in marinade and coat.
3. Seal and refrigerate for 30 mins - 1 hr, turning once.
4. Discard marinade and pat fish slightly dry with a papertowel.
5. Grill 3-4 mins on the George Foreman until fish flakes. Or you can broil for 5-10 mins depending on thickness of fish.

TIP: Marinate the fish in a ziplock bag. That way you can simply flip the bag over in the refrigerator one or two times while marinating. When it's finished marinating, simply cut off one corner of the bag and drain out the marinade and then it's much easier to pull the fish out & pat it slightly dry.
