      YUMMY! We all loved them. There was one left over after dinner and my daughter snagged and left my husband with a sad face. Unsure of what one bunch of cilantro equalled. I think next time I will use less than I did. Is definately a keeper and look forward to making it again! Thanks for sharing!!

      Wow! This is indeed restaurant quality. I'm not a big fan of cilantro, but I used the indicated amount. The result was heavenly, which was oft repeated by my family during and after dinner. I mistakenly used too much garlic, which I think overpowered the subtle flavors. I will be making this again tonight with the listed amount of garlic. This recipe is a keeper!
