      Wow! I was hesitant to make this because of the vanilla, but I'm glad I did. It's great!

      Smooooth! After reading this recipe I was sure I would have a very strong reaction to the dish. Either I would love it or I would hate it. Tomato and vanilla? I loved it. I prepared it with basa, a Vietnamese fish similar to orange roughy. It was so light, so delicate, so smooth on the tongue and fragrant with vanilla. Try it-it's a killer sauce!

      I wasn't sure what to expect, but actually I don't think the vanilla was all that noticeable. However, let me say that I didn't have vanilla bean, so I used 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. So I am not sure I got an accurate taste. I really did like the sauce, I'm just not sure how much the vanilla added. Overall, I enjoyed my dinner and am glad I tried this.
