  • I figured out after I'd already added the corriander that the recipe actually was calling for fresh Cilantro. I added mushrooms to the recipe. Ended up really bland. I might try it again when I have cilantro in the house, but will probably add other spices to it as well to give it more flavor. - 1/28/09

  • This is a very tasty recipe. You're likely to like this even if you're not a big fan of fish. - 1/23/09
