I really enjoyed this dish. I wish I could give this 4.5 stars. DH rated it 3 I rated it 5. I was thinking that the ginger would overpower this dish. But...DH said "what is that tart taste?" (It was the lime juice!!) Here I was wondering where that wonderful tangy flavor was coming from. (yes, I'm the one that made the dish!)This dish woke up some taste buds that have been dormant for awhile. I would make this again in a heart beat, but DH would have to be GONE!...(no! not like that..maybe hunting)Thanks, Sharlene~W for posting
