This is a FANTASTIC recipe. It turned out great and everyone loved it. I didn't use the walnuts or the broccoli, and added a few splashes of riesling wine, some cajun seasonings for a little spice and a lot more garlic. Dipped crusty bread into the sauce and it was delicious!!
I made this as an appetiser for a Brazilian themed dinner. It was a big hit. Everyone asked for the recipe. Highly recomended.
Thanks for posting this interesting dish, was ok .First time using coconut milk. I found this rather bland, but I didnt use fresh items as indicated, may be the cause.
