We enjoyed this although we did feel it was a bit on the bland side. I had to spice it up with a touch of red pepper flakes. I would suggest adding more cilantro and some salt. Served it over white rice. Very easy and quick to prepare. Thanks for posting.

Goodness me - how delicious and easy! I was home alone and wanted something easy and tasty for dinner; this fit the bill perfectly! I made a couple of amendments - I used dried cilantro instead of fresh (all I had in), used a little extra coconut milk (personal preference) and, by mistake, double the lemon juice. It was a bit too lemony, I must admit! I would relate this a little to a thai red curry, only without the kick. A definite keeper - thanks Marlitt!
