    Definitely will make it again...this was a hit w/ the children. I made it with a seafood blend (shrimp, crabmeat, squid) and it was yummy. :) - 9/7/08

    This was good, but with the all the flavor from the lime and garlic, I feel it needs some heat to counterbalance it. My husband added some red pepper flakes to his and said it was much better. Will add them if I make it again. - 6/26/08
