I made this for the first time over the weekend, and we really liked it. For sure our favorite fish dish made at home to date, though that is not a very big list yet. Even the kids seemed to like it. We used Basa fillets. We also served it with some herbed jasmine rice, but thought we needed something with more color. The plate was just too Ďwhiteí and boring. Anyone think they have the perfect side for this dish; Iíd love to hear it. The yellow rice sounds good, Iíll have to do a search and see what I can find for that.
Iíve not been a fan of cilantro, but lately itís not been a problem for me. Typically I find it tastes just like soap, but in the past several months Iíve not experienced that problem. (This would include RebeccaTís Tortilla Soup, some spring rolls, this cilantro butter, and a handful of other things.) I wish I knew what changed (me, preparation, or whatever), but I donít really know.
The Creator, when he obliges man to eat, invites him to do so by appetite, and rewards him by pleasure.
